Book Notices

THE WRITINGS OF ANNA FREUD. Volume V, 1956-1965. Research at the Hampstead Child-Therapy Clinic and Other Papers. New York: International Universities Press, 1969, xii + 575 pp., $7 50.

Part I of the fifth volume of this compilation is addressed to fund-granting foundations. It describes Anna Freud's methodology, documenting the first steps leading to her creation of a new clinical tool—the Developmental Profile—and contains an account of new Conceptualization-Developmental Lines. In this section, too, are a "Metapsychological Assessment of the Adult Personality—The Adult Profile," an account of the manner in which pathology in childhood is assessed, the relationship between psychoanalysis and the law, and a description of services for underprivileged children. Part II takes up direct child observation, prediction, adolescence, comments on Bowlby's controversial views regarding separation, and numerous published discussions on parent-child relationships, obsessional neurosis, plus tributes to Ernst Kris and Herman Nunberg. Various applications of psychoanalytic thinking to child upbringing, child guidance clinics, nursery schools, emotional and social development of children, children in hospitals, law and pediatric practice take up Part III. Part IV consists of prefaces, introductions, forewords and tributes to papers and books by Casuso, Kata Levy, Nagera, Milner, Freeman et al. Part V is a separate item, consisting of Anna Freud's address upon receiving the Honorary Doctor of Science Award from Jefferson Medical College in 1964.

THE WRITINGS OF ANNA FREUD. Volume VII, 1966-1970. Problems of Psychoanalytic Training, Diagnosis and the Technique of Therapy. New York: International Universities Press, 1971, xi + 312 pp., $12.50.

Here are Anna Freud's latest papers, which carry on her well-known ideas on developmental phenomena, diagnosis, technique, and practical applications in the areas of education, law, guidance clinics, the special problems of underprivileged and handicapped children, etc. Great emphasis in this volume, however, is placed on questions of the training and education of psychoanalyst, both child and adult, and the "difficulties which beset the members of the International Psycho-Analytical Association at the present time."
