Overview

Although she remained faithful to the basic frameworks established by her father, Anna Freud (1895-1982) was one of the most creative and innovative thinkers in the history of psychoanalysis. She remains an eminently influential figure in child analysis, in the treatment of those traumatized by early separation from their parents, and the application of psychoanalytic insights into education and institutional care. She also wrote extensively on all these themes. This important volume begins with substantial extracts from her classic Ego and the Mechanism of Defense, perhaps the first crucial contribution to psychoanalytic theory elaborated by someone other than Sigmund Freud. There follow many essential papers on both normal and pathological child development, and then shorter sections on adolescence and analytical technique. Introductory notes and linking passages make this the definitive overview of Anna Freud¹s distinguished body of work.
