A Perspective on Child Psychoanalysis 1994: The Recognition of Relational Theory and Technique in Child Treatment

Neil Altman, Ph.D.

The central assertion of this article is that child psychoanalysts have been moving toward relational theory and practice in recent years. However, the lingering influence of drive theory and associated analytic technique is evident in a common tendency to ignore the impact on the patient of what the analyst does and says in the analytic interaction. Clinical examples illustrating this point are taken from the published work of Freudian, Kleinian, and Winnicottian analysts. Discussion of the cases focuses on explicating the points at which the analytic work presented does or does not focus on the here-and-now interaction.
