For many years the regular observation of infants during the first two years of life has been a vital element in the training of child psychotherapists at the Tavistock Clinic. This book presents case studies which are evocative, sensitive, and jargon-free, in order to explore the developing relationships of infants with their mothers and other family members. Drawing on the work of pioneers such as Klein and Winnicott, it shows how the capacity to learn from direct observation can be developed. The book will be of value not only to parents but to all professionals working with young children.
