Overview

Are the effects of childhood psychoanalysis discernible in adult psychological development? The Psychoanalytic Study of Lives Over Time demonstrates that child psychoanalysis does significantly affect adult development by presenting detailed case reports of both childhood analysis and adult psychotherapy or analysis. Providing a window into childhood and adult lives, the book also addresses the question of how we understand issues of continuity and change within lives over time through the effectiveness of psychoanalysis. Discussion of these cases by prominent clinicians and clinician-researchers offers a contemporary perspective for understanding both clinical psychoanalysis and the study of lives over time.
