About the Author

Elizabeth Spillius studied general psychology at the University of Toronto (1945), social anthropology at the University of Chicago, The London School of Economics and The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations (1945-1957) and psychoanalysis at the Institute of Psychoanalysis in London (1956 to the present). Her main writings have been Family and Social Network (1957, writing as Elizabeth Bott), Tongan Society at the Time of Captain Cook's Visits (1982), Melanie Klein Today (1988) and Encounters with Melanie Klein (2007)

Edna O'Shaughnessy came to psychoanalysis from philosophy. She trained first as a Child Psychotherapist at the Tavistock Clinic in the 1950s, and then in the 1960s, she trained at the British Psychoanalytical Society, of which she is a training and supervising analyst and also a child analyst. Her many published papers are written from both a clinical and a conceptual perspective
