“Polarity, Paradox and the Organizing Process in Development”; Parent-Infant Psychotherapy and Child Analytic Technique: In Honor of Louis Sander
by James M. Herzog, MD
A child analysis and a subsequent family therapy are presented and discussed in terms of Sander’s monumental contributions to infant-parent development and clinical theory. I draw on earlier discussions with Sander on these topics and note how his insights validate a certain kind of child analytic technique I practice.
Psychoanalytic Inquiry, 39:1, 98-108, February 2019.
This journal issue includes several articles by BPSI members, all of them exploring Louis Sander’s contributions to psychoanalytic theory and his influence on clinicians, theorists, and researchers.
