Hermine Hug-Hellmuth

£40.00

Product description

Hermine Hug-Hellmuth was the world's first practising child psychoanalyst, making use of systematic child observation from a psychoanalytic point of view and applying psychoanalysis to education. A number of factors - her close ties with education, the unfortunate circumstances of her murder by a nephew, and her own intensely private personality - have contributed to her relative obscurity.;Working from primary archival material, the authors have compiled a detailed coverage of Hug-Hellmuth's life and work. In the first part of the book they present a brief biography, pieced together from the few extant descriptions of Hug-Hellmuth as a person. In the second part they provide a selection of published but previously untranslated material in historical sequence. An epilogue summarizes Hug-Hellmuth's contributions to psychoanalytic theory and practice, drawing comparisons with the early work of Anna Freud and Melanie Klein.

The dust jacket has signs of sun damage and shelf wear. The book itself is in very good condition with unmarked pages. Published in 1991
