Martha Harris

A series of four articles written for New Society in conjunction with Mary Douglas, Reader in Social Anthropology at University College, London, who wrote complementary articles from an anthropological perspective. The series is headed: “In this special four-week series, a psychologist and an anthropologist look at the ‘outer circle’ of family relationships which are too often left unexplored: brother/sister; grandparent/grandchild; in-laws; aunts, uncles and cousins.” It bears witness to Martha Harris' emphasis on understanding the wider social and developmental context of personality growth, as borne out by the personality development seminars which she instituted for child psychotherapy trainees. During this period she was also preparing a series of small books for parents on children's personality development (the first Tavistock Clinic series), published in 1969. There are a number of autobiographical illustrations in these books and articles. Martha Harris was involved with all the books in the Tavistock series and wrote Your Eleven Year Old, Your Twelve to Thirteen Year Old and Your Fourteen to Sixteen Year Old (1969; these were republished in 2007 as Your Teenager). Other editors in the series were Christopher Dare, Dilys Daws, Elsie Osborne, Edna O'Shaughnessy, and Dina Rosenbluth.
