Knitting a Clinic: Between the Child and the Other results from the primordial signifiers that cut through this text, signifiers such as structure, subject, lack, child, Other, object petit a and clinic. Through these signifiers one can glimpse the distance that exists between these, distance that allows the possibility of producing something new: an act. This book emerges from the clinic and its resulting ties. Issues such as the infantile, childhood, infancy and the child are not new for psychoanalysis. However, the theoretical framework that Lacan based on Freud enables us to think and read from a different perspective not only the clinic with children, but also the concepts mentioned above.
