Book Description

These are the edited papers from a conference held in 2008 on the topic of problems with child and adolescent analysis. The contributors come from widely differing theoretical backgrounds and use a broad variety of metapsychological concepts, among them contemporary Kleinian, post-Bionian classical Freudian. This collection helps widen our understanding of technique with children and adolescents and together they show a very modern psychoanalytic technique may be emerging from modern recent work with children and adolescents.
