Psychotherapy with Severely Deprived Children


This study describes the experience of severely deprived children referred for individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Most were living in children's homes, all came from chaotic and disrupted families, and many had been abused or neglected. Children from such backgrounds have previously been considered unsuitable for psychotherapy, and the theorectical and technical issues arising from their treatment are discussed here, and detailed case material is presented.
