Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

'This book marks a new and very exciting phase of the historic link between the Anna Freud Centre in London and the Yale Child Study Center in New Haven, two places which offer treatment, training and research based on the same psychoanalytic model of development. The book contains papers by many of the foremost developmental scientists and clinicians in the US and Europe today, who came together to celebrate new research collaborations between the two centres, and to explore their clinical and theoretical implications.'
- Anne-Marie Sandler, Child and Adult Psychoanalyst, Past President of the British Psychoanalytical Society and past Director of the Anna Freud Centre

'This truly remarkable and highly engaging volume celebrates new flourishing international collaborations among clinical scholars and basic scientists, representing psychoanalysis, child psychiatry, neuroscience, and developmental psychology. The fortunate reader is invited to participate in sparkling informed discourse across perspectives, as outstanding chapters are paired with integrating and challenging commentaries written by authors from related yet varied disciplines. A wonderful result of this major venture is the reader's sense of discovery as he or she joins practitioners and scientists in together imagining novel speculations about and approaches to enduring developmental questions-how attachments and intimate relationships are facilitated; parenting preoccupation; biological and psychosocial bases of subjectivity; the origins and nature of interpersonal conflict; sequelae of violent trauma.'
- Stuart T. Hauser, MD, PhD, Senior Scientist, Judge Baker Children's Center, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
