Reviews and Endorsements

The Dead Mother brings together essays in honour of Andre Green to develop the theme of his most famous paper of the same title. The concept of the 'dead mother' refers to the process of mourning that takes place in the child following maternal depresssion, when the child experiences the loss of love. This collection of essays written by contributors drawn from different professional backgrounds including: Christopher Bollas, Otto Kernberg, Michael Parsons, Rosine Jozef Perelberg, Joseph Sandler, reflect on this concept and how it contributes to other psychic syndromes. The Dead Mother is a valuable contribution to literature on psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic approaches to grief, loss and depression.
