A Biographical Note on Henri Parents Related Papers

Selma Kramer, M.D.

Henri parens envisions psychoanalysis, beyond its importance as a science and as a therapeutic modality, in a broader and potentially more significant sense as offering great benefit for prevention and alleviation of individual and even social problems. He has tested certain theories, which he has applied to child development in a ten-year-long psychoanalytic direct observation mother-infant project, resulting in The Development of Aggression in Early Childhood (1979). Further outgrowths and applications of that work are his projects studying the prevention of excessive hostility in children, and education for parenting, currently being developed and tested in several private schools in Philadelphia from which children can learn psychodynamic aspects of parenting. In the process children are helped to understand complex emotions, not the least of which is love.

Parens' interests are rich and varied, ranging from psychoanalysis to music, theater, and football. In psychoanalysis too, his interests are varied, encompassing clinical work with children and adults, theory, research, and teaching. His encyclopedic knowledge of Freud's writings has led colleagues to use him as a reference source; [he reminds us of the Talmudic scholar's need to understand each and every word].
