Reviews
Review Quotes
"This impressive volume conveys both the breadth and depth of psychological work with children and adolescents undertaken over the years by the members of the Anna Freud Centre. It combines scholarly research with lively clinical discussion, maintaining throughout an awareness of the political, social, and community contexts within which their work takes place. This book illustrates how new developments are nurtured and grow from a well-established tradition in child psychoanalysis and developmental research."
"This book puts the spotlight on Miss Freud's ongoing legacy. A chorus of voices from seven decades in Hampstead chronicle her achievements in the past and demonstrate her influence in the Anna Freud Centre of the present. May these pages lead to a revival of interest and appreciation for the richness and depth of the Anna Freud tradition!"
"This excellent volume presents an extraordinary view of the living contributions of Anna Freud and of the Anna Freud Centre. A most interesting group of recollections in the first section sets the stage for a dozen rich, vivid case reports of present-day child and adolescent psychoanalysis that create a powerful demonstration of the Anna Freud Tradition. Their clinical immediacy and their clarity of explanation form a considerable part of that tradition. A number of additional, elegant accounts of clinical applications round out the picture of Anna Freud's continuing influence on the treatment of children. A marvellous book that will reward close reading."

Summaries
Main Description
This volume honours Anna Freud's work and legacy by providing a detailed summary of the Psychoanalytic Developmental Tradition and illustrations of its contributions to the field of Child Psychotherapy and beyond. Through the use of clinical, historical, anecdotal and outreach narratives, this book seeks to acknowledge how regardless of the evolution of child psychoanalytic theory and practice, and recent changes at the Anna Freud Centre in terms of a broad scope of trainings and interventions, the underlying psychoanalytic principles set by its founder continue to inform the work of clinicians and scholars, both within and outside this school of thought.
