Narrative of a Child Analysis

Narrative of a Child Analysis: The Conduct of the Psycho-Analysis of Children as Seen in the Treatment of a Ten-Year-Old Boy (The Writings of Melanie Klein, Volume 4)

Narrative of a Child Analysis cover

Klein’s last volume, first appearing in 1961, provides us with a vivid picture of her work with ten-year-old ‘Richard’. Having kept careful notes of each session, she was later able to describe the day-to-day course of this four-month wartime analysis, interpreting Richard’s drawings, play, verbal associations, and reports of dreams. In a series of accompanying notes, Klein links this clinical material to her theoretical conclusions, offering us an invaluable guide to the technique of psychoanalysing children.
