Edna O'Shaughnessy in Conversation with Jean Arundale

Edna O'Shaughnessy and Jean Arundale, Ph.D.


Over a career spanning nearly 50 years, Edna O'Shaughnessy has been actively involved in the fields of child and adult analysis, working in a busy private practice and involved with the Association of Child Psychotherapists, the British Institute of Psychoanalysis and the London Kleinians. She has supervised, analysed and taught numerous psychotherapists and psychoanalysts, employing her dedication, keen insight, and lively imagination not only in the consulting room, but on many committees, conference podiums, editorial meetings and a variety of teaching venues. Drawn by her arresting ideas and fluent writing capacities, I approached her first to request case consultations and then with the hope of persuading her to publish more of her material. We reached a compromise by agreeing on a taped conversation for this Journal. A list of her articles appears at the end of this conversation.
