This book presents a selection of the works of Hansi Kennedy, preeminent child psychoanalyst, whose career began with Anna Freud in the Hampstead War Nurseries and continued at the Hampstead Child Therapy Clinic (renamed the Anna Freud Centre in 1982) until retirement in 1993. Her career spanned a significant period in the development of child psychoanalysis, as her ideas foreshadowed a number of advances in theory during the period which have had a profound impact on child psychoanalytic technique.
