Becoming Themselves: Infants and Toddlers

Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

The author uses her experience as a mother of a young child to understand the preoedipal needs of children. Paramount among what children need is the mother's sensitivity to creating an emotional environment which balances the conflicting needs for union and separation.
