The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child. Volume XXIII.
Eissler, Ruth S., Ed.; And Others
Twenty-seven papers treat aspects of the psychoanalytic study of the child. Problems of psychopathology and therapy considered are the fantasy of the phallic woman, the use of child analysis, the background of perversions, variables in the production of neurotic disturbances, treatment of narcissistic personality disorders, and problems of the ownership of the body. Contributions to psychoanalytic theory concern the relation of explaining and understanding, the theory of defense, the economic point of view and defense, form and content, and the concept of ego apparatus. Aspects of normal and pathological development include character formation, patterns in blind and sighted infants, conscience development, the development of music ability, and the early genital phase. Clinical contributions involve the re-education of a retarded blind child; a blind child's trip to the hospital; communication in the treatment of a child tiqueur; and object cathexis in a borderline twin. The relevance of psychoanalytic theory to jurisprudence is also considered. An author index contains articles from the first 22 volumes in the series. (JD)
