The development of aggression in early childhood, rev. ed.


The development of aggression in early childhood, rev. ed.

Parens, Henri.

Jason Aronson


407 pages




Adult and child psychoanalyst Parens (psychiatry, Jefferson Medical College; the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia) looks at the roots of aggression in early childhood. The study conducted in this book was carried out from 1970 through the time of the book's original publication in 1979. In this revised edition, Parens' theory is offset by a new, 50-page, two-part introduction that provides a historical overview of the many theories of aggression in psychoanalytic thought. The new introduction discusses the clinical applications of the multi-trends theory of aggression, and offers further clinical theorizing about hostile destructiveness and clinical technique. The book is intended not only for mental health professionals of all orientations, but also for all those who work with young children, including caregivers, pediatricians, educators, and counselors.
