Zu diesem Buch

"About Children and Children-No-Longer" is the long-awaited collection of Paula Heimann´s published and unpublished papers. From the published work it includes the seminal paper 'On Countertransference' (1950); 'Dynamics of Transference Interpretations' (1956); 'Some Notes on Sublimation' (1959); and 'Notes on the Anal Stage' (1962). In addition, more recent works are published here in English for the first time, describing the author's particular integration of theory and technique.

Paula Heimann's ideas on an undifferentiated early phase of infant development and its implications for analytic technique, along with her unique knowledge of both Kleinian object relations and classical theory and technique, make her work very relevant both to present-day practice and the understanding of the historical development of some central psychoanalytic ideas.

When she died in 1982, Paula Heimann was preparing her work for publication and this task has been completed by Margret Tonnesmann, who has carefully edited the papers and introduces their main themes. Paula Heimann's background, and the personal and professional events that most influenced her writings and contributions to psychoanalysis, are outlined in an introductory memoir by Pearl King, formerly President of the British Psycho-Analytical Society and Secretary of the International Psychoanalytical Association.
