Review by:
M. Bavin

This work, published in two impressive volumes, is the report on the proceedings of a Seminar on Mental Health and Infant Development held at Chichester, England, in 1952 under the auspices of the World Federation of Mental Health. The seminar which lasted three weeks, studied the first two years of infant development and those aspects of family life associated with this. Fifty-one participants from thirty different countries were brought together with an eminent teaching staff from America, Great Britain and France, drawn from anthropology, child psychiatry, psychology, pediatrics, psycho-analysis, education, psychiatric social work, public health, medicine and nursing. The programme consisted of lectures, the study of case material, films and other visual aids.

The chief value of this report seems to the reviewer to be the impression given of the complexity and extent of the problems relating to infant development. It could prove a useful and stimulating reference book for government departments and administrators.
