The latest volume in the esteemed series features sections on discontinuities and continuities in development, highlighting transformational and nonlinear processes; clinical contributions on developing emotional resilience in children and parents, the role of interpretation in child analysis, and conjoint treatment models with children with attachment disturbances;  developmental perspectives on conscience development in young children and the assessment of older adults; and psychoanalytic perspectives on artistic creativity, as illustrated in the treatment of a young artist and the work of Oskar Kokoschka. A final section, “Imagining the Unimaginable,” includes psychoanalytic reflections on September 11th and the controversial question of death’s psychic representability.
