Clinical Studies in Psychoanalysis—Research Project of the Hampstead Child-Therapy Clinic

Anna Freud

Place of Research

The following is a brief and preliminary account of some clinical investigations which are being carried out by a group of people who cooperate in work in the Hampstead Child-Therapy Clinic. This group consists of a number of analysts and child analysts, all of them members of the British Psycho-Analytic Society, supplemented by a number of analytic child therapists who have qualified from the four years' training course which is attached to the Clinic. The Clinic itself has functioned since 1951 and has grown steadily since then. At present, the number of people engaged in clinical work there stands somewhere between thirty and forty. Interest is directed on the one hand to the treatment of childhood disorders, on the other hand to the study of childhood development, normal and abnormal.
