By providing historical comparison of their development, Holder (editor, Bulletin of the European Psychoanalytical Association and International Psychoanalysis) delineates the theoretical and methodological differences between Anna Freud's child psychoanalysis and Melanie Klein's analytical child psychotherapy. He then illustrates these differences through discussion of one his own cases. He also considers the analysis of adolescents as a separate realm from child psychotherapy. Finally, he concludes with a discussion of how child psychotherapy can add to the practices of adult analysts and therapists. Distributed in the US by Stylus.
