Foundations and Modifications Required in the Treatment of Diverse Populations
We begin with a discussion of the major historical, conceptual, and educational factors that have hindered a wider acceptance of psychoanalysis for those young children whose difficulties make this the treatment of choice. Then we will explore typical and problematic development in several domains: sense of self/agency, sense of others, use of defenses and other adaptations to the environment.
