About this title


From one of history's most famous child psychologists comes a collection of wide-ranging essays in which he reflects on the people, events, and cultural influences that shaped him and his work.
“Combining humanistic wisdom and clinical insight, the volume reflects eminent psychoanalyst Bettelheim's concerns as both child therapist and Holocaust survivor.”—Publishers Weekly

From Library Journal:

A well-known child psychoanalyst and survivor of two Nazi concentration camps, 85-year-old Bettelheim ( The Uses of Enchantment , LJ 6/1/76) reveals his life influences. In 18 essays collected under three headings--Freud, children, and the Holocaust--the author recalls how he got involved in psychoanalysis, influential books and movies, how Annie Sullivan's work with the severely handicapped Helen Keller foreshadowed his "milieu therapy" with autistic children, and how the psychological scars of children of Holocaust survivors rarely heal due to an inability to mourn adequately. This readable collection, which is nostalgic, personal, and informative, evokes strong feelings, especially the essay on Jewish "ghetto thinking," which describes an ethnic inertia that helped march "millions of people, like lemmings . . . to their own deaths." Recommended for larger psychology collections.
