Claudine and Pierre Geissmann trace the history and development of child psychoanalysis from its birth in Vienna to its present status as a thriving discipline practiced on an international scale. Through their examination of the different schools that were created around European psychoanalysts, beginning with Sigmund Freud, the authors show how child analysis has been shaped in part through conflicts that have arisen between pioneering theorists in this field. They argue that a century of clinical work has created a unique and important understanding of the psychosomatic troubles of childhood, and established valuable therapeutic work with children and adolescents which will continue and develop in the future.
