“This book is a most valuable demonstration of the cross-fertilizing currents in child psychotherapy in Europe. The integration of post-kleinian psychoanalytic theory, particularly drawing on the work of Frances Tustin and of the discoveries of child developmental researchers and neuroscientists, I elegantly described, and the clinical implications of this convergence are explored. The contributions of Houzel, Pestalozzi, Haag and Alvarez indicate just how alive this international dialogue has become. This book is a landmark in developments which fire new hope of understanding deeply troubled children and adolescents and will be read widely and attentively and with profound appreciation.”
Magaret Rustin, Head of Child Psychotherapy, Tavistock Clinic
