Review by:
Leon Hoffman

The editor and contributors of this volume are all prominent child psychoanalysts and child psychiatrists, many of whom have been influenced by Margaret Mahler's theory of separation-individuation. Etezady aptly describes the volume's aim as becoming “a source of reference for clinicians of all persuasions who are concerned with the treatment of children and adolescents” (p. ix). This aim is both a strength and a weakness. It is a book which is difficult to read continuously because of the different styles and different aims of the various chapter authors. However, as a source book, it is not meant to be read as a whole. The analytic framework is clearly evident throughout the volume. There are many rich theoretical and clinical insights, including many detailed case examples that are valuable for both the novice and the expert in the field. It is important to note that throughout the book there are many instances where the distinction between child analysis and therapy is blurred. Some authors clearly distinguish child psychoanalysis from other forms of therapy, while others blur the distinction so that concepts such as resistance and interpretation are used as broad rubrics in a variety of therapeutic settings.
