Review by:
Maria Turpeenniemi

Tor-Björn Hägglund, a medical doctor and psychoanalyst, was born in Swedish-speaking Ostrobothnia, and has worked for almost 30 years as a training analyst for the Finnish Psychoanalytical Society. He was professor of psychoanalytical Society. He was professor of psychotherapy and medical psychology at the University of Oulu from 1977 to 1989, and a senior lecturer in adolescent psychiatry at the University of Helsinki from 1977 to 1989. He has received awards for his studies and papers on adolescents and dying patients. In 1994, he was granted a degree of honorary doctor in the Faculty of Pedagogy at the University of Oulu. Hägglund is widely recognized as the initiator and developer of training of psychotherapists for adolescents. He remains one of the most significant and esteemed psychoanalytic thinkers and authors in Finland.

Susirajalla is a collection of essays. The editor of the collection, Pekka Impiö, is also one of the authors, who include Hägglund's students, coworkers and friends. The essays deal with Hägglund's outstanding production, consisting of scientific as well as literary works and articles. The psychoanalytic papers focus on dying and mourning, adolescence, inner space, creativity and folk poetry. Hägglund has written in an interesting way about Oedipality, body-ego and aging, and has pondered on what takes place between the psychoanalyst and the analysand. Hägglund's literary works consists of essays, novels and collections of poems.
