Technique in Child and Adolescent Analysis

Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

'Our era yearns for unidimensional explanations and quick fixes to mental disturbances. Cure is based on medication or pedagogical support solely, rather than helping the patient understand how his inner world affects his everyday life. In contrast, Günter's volume shows that child and adolescent analysis is "alive and kicking". The technique advocated is "untechnical": showing how the analyst should use her flexibility in taking on board all sources of information available and her creativity in reaching the young patient. Examples and discussions on play, transference, and interpretations with different patient categories are provided by distinguished clinicians. We recommend the book to students and experienced clinicians alike.'
