The Little Book of Child and Adolescent Development presents a modern, psychoanalytically-informed summary of how the mind develops from infancy through young adulthood. It is a comprehensive work that integrates analytic theories with a contemporary systems model of development, and also draws on scholarly research from neighboring fields. Key models discussed include attachment theory, intersubjective theory, cognitive development theory, and infancy research. This book's contemporary approach to development makes it relevant to such timely topics as bullying, the experience of LGBT youth, preadolescent and adolescent use of the internet, and the struggles of young (emerging) adults in modern society. Written to optimize ease of use for the busy clinician, key clinical points are summarized at the end of each chapter, and a glossary of important concepts and terminology is also included. The text will be valuable for psychiatric residents, psychoanalytic candidates and faculty, and graduate students who would benefit from a quick and concise review of the developmental trajectory.

It has been decades since psychoanalysis has had an adequate textbook on child and adolescent development. Gilmore and Meersand have provided us with an excellent one that avoids the parochialism of traditional psychoanalytic texts, integrating the disparate schools that populate the modern day pluralistic world of psychoanalysis while also weaving in the relevant findings from cognitive and neuroscience. This book will be essential for psychoanalytic candidatesaround the world.
