In honor of the seventieth anniversary of the debut of the Psychoanalytic Study of the Child series, this volume features contemporary reflections on the inaugural issue. This salute to a groundbreaking series also collects essays and clinical contributions by a range of prominent psychoanalysts that demonstrate its relevance to the current zeitgeist. One such section reflects on how cultural attitudes impact the field, such as the war against women in psychoanalytic culture. Two other sections highlight the cutting edge of perspectives regarding children on the spectrum, and the application of child analytic principles to educational models, school consultations, and psychopharmacology.

Claudia Lament is clinical assistant professor in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, The Child Study Center, New York University Langone Medical Center. Robert A. King is professor of psychiatry at the Yale Child Study Center, Yale School of Medicine.
