Overview

For psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, social workers, sociologists, and educators, Transit (a psychoanalyst based in Michigan) has collected seven papers that explore how the professions frame discussions of children and their problems. She views the current professional discourse as one that primarily advances the interests and voice of the professional while silencing and restraining the child. "Professionals can no longer claim that their knowledge is an unbiased objective source of expertise," she writes. "Their involvement with power has inevitably compromised their claims to truth."
