Meltzer in Paris

Touze, J. (ed.) 2017. Harris Meltzer Trust.

This book focuses on work with children undertaken by the GERPEN (Groupe d’Études et de Recherches Psychoanalytiques pour le développement de l’Enfant et du Nourisson) in Caen and Paris. It is one of a series that record Donald Meltzer’s clinical seminars and supervisions, which were conducted in various countries over many years. Meltzer believed that clinical supervision was the only way to teach psychoanalytic practice, and he treated supervision as an art form. This book offers a valuable teaching model for practitioners, as well as demonstrating Meltzer’s wealth of insight into character development and analytic technique.
