The Borderline Psychotic Child reviews the history and evolution of the borderline diagnosis for children, both in the USA and the UK, bringing the reader up to date with current clinical opinion on the subject. Using a range of clinical case studies, the book attempts to harmonise US and UK views on borderline diagnosis in the light of new developments in theory at The Menninger Clinic, The Anna Freud Centre and The Tavistock Clinic. Providing an introduction to the borderline concept, and a systematic overview of current theoretical thinking and clinical practices from leading practitioners in the field, The Borderline Psychotic Child will make informative reading both for professionals and students in the field of child analysis.
