• Discusses comprehensively the broad range of psychoanalytic developmental theories and places each in historical context, filling a void, in the literature
• Organizes the content of each developmental theory by age categories
• Addresses seven psychological schools of thought, with an emphasis on the developmental perspective
• Lends to the revival of interest in psychoanalytic theory that was energized with the publication of APA’s Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (PDM)
• Brings to the forefront the ongoing integration of psychoanalysis and the neurosciences with a chapter on the neurobiology of attachment

In the Guide to Psychanalytic Developmental Theories, the authors summarize the major theories that have evolved since Freud’s early formulations and include his own foundational work. Furthermore, the authors grant the historical context for each theory by providing a biographical glimpse of the author’s own life. As much as Freud’s self-analysis was pivotal to his "discovery" of the oedipal conflict, each author’s personal history contributes to the theory he or she created. An emphasis will be placed on the historical continuity of each successive edition of the theory reflecting an evolutionary process in which each author takes cognizance of the modifications of psychoanalytic metapsychology and the intellectual trends that exist at the time of the formulation of his or her developmental theory.

This guide provides an opportunity for readers to compare and contrast not only the different theories, but also what occurs within each developmental phase. This book uniquely organizes the content of each developmental theory into its specific developmental phases which no other book on the subject presents in quite the same manner.

Written for:

Clinical psychologists, psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, social workers, and graduate students and professors working in the areas of social work, psychology, clinical psychology, school psychology, and counseling
