Francoise Dolto

Françoise Dolto began her career as a member of the International Psychoanalytical Association, was admired by Winnicott, close to Lacan, and influenced by Morgenstern. Her life witnessed an extraordinary evolution from the conservatism of her parents, through the Second World War, to the turbulence of Paris in the 1950s and 1960s. In the succeeding years, Dolto made a number of original contributions to the understanding of psychosis, neonatology, female sexuality, education, and religion. Although controversial, she was able to write both for the general public and for professional colleagues. In 1979, Dolto opened La Maison Verte as a specialist centre for the practical application of her theories. Similar centres have since been created around the world. Dolto continued to write and teach until her death in 1988.
