Inside Lives: Psychoanalysis and the Growth of Personality

Waddell, M. 1998. Duckworth.

The aim of Inside Lives is to bring psychoanalytic theory to life, and make it accessible to a far wider range of readers than would normally be familiar with such an approach. In the simplest terms it tells the most complex of stories: the story of human mental development from infancy to old age. Waddell traces life’s major developmental phases, lucidly exploring the aspects of experience that promote or impede emotional growth.
