Case Studies in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis presents a wide range of full case presentations of children and adolescents undergoing psychoanalytic treatment, covering key issues such as trauma, aggression, depression and sexual development.

The fascinating and touching cases throw the door open to the consulting room in a unique and unhindered fashion. The reader is afforded a fly-on-the-wall view of the intensive games, craft activities and conversations that take place between analyst and patient, and is able to witness how joy, anger, anxiety and sorrow can be expressed in a safe environment. The case studies paint a vivid picture of how the children and their analysts are able to approach, investigate and give form to the strongest and most painful of emotions. Each contributing analyst shows how the child they are treating gradually gains understanding of who they really are, or who they are becoming. The reader will gain valuable knowledge and insight through these observations and be given vital tools to take into their own practice.

Including a foreword from Antonino Ferro, This book is a dynamic and much-needed resource for all analysts in practice and training working with child and adolescent patients, as well as policy makers looking at the mental wellbeing of young people and those interested in the curative factors of psychoanalytic treatment.
