Overview

This book provides insight and findings from leading psychoanalysts who are involved in early prevention research and clinical work. Advances in the sciences of early development have brought a heightened awareness to the crucial importance of early experiences for health and development as well as building strong foundations for education and preventing disorder. New approaches are applied in home visitation, working with immigrant families, and those stressed by trauma, conflicts and economic disadvantage. Examples of clinical application and the implementation of promising programs in an "outreach psychoanalysis" are also provided.
