ACP members Anita Schmukler and Paula Atkeson new book: Teaching Effective Supervison of Child and Adolescent Analysis

Teaching Effective Supervision of Child and Adolescent Analysis: Enriching the Candidate's Clinical Experience is intended to help the supervisor of child and adolescent analysis. In presenting the supervisory experiences of their volume contributors, Anita G. Schmukler and Paula G. Atkeson offer a diverse guidebook that assists both the supervising analysts and their candidates in their respective work with children. Focusing on assessment, working with parents, transference and countertransference, ethical dilemmas, play therapy, and fantasies and dreams, this volume ultimately assists the candidate in making careful assessments to determine optimal treatment.

Editorial Reviews

Drs. Atkeson and Schmukler have collected papers that not only summarize the available literature on supervision of child and adolescent analysis but provide substantive ideas for conceptualizing the very complex processes involved in such an endeavor. This book offers both the conceptual and the practical, so that both the ‘why’ and the ‘how to’ of making supervision a helpful undertaking are closely linked in the reader's mind.
(Carla Elliott-Neely, Washington Center for Psychoanalysis)

This outstanding book makes an invaluable contribution to the education of the child analyst; written by a group of skilled and experienced clinicians and supervisors, it covers essential issues in the teaching and learning of child analysis in a highly informative and practical way. A work that can serve as a guide and model for students and teachers, this book is essential reading for anyone engaged in the field of child analysis.
(Theodore J. Jacobs, M.D., New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute)

This book examines the work of supervision throughout the various phases of a child and adolescent psychoanalytic treatment, with specific focus on the tasks pertinent to each phase. This specificity, combined with wonderful clinical examples, makes the study essential reading for both seasoned supervisors and for those just starting out. With this study, Schmukler and Atkeson make a contribution that is invaluable in itself, and in expanding and deepening the scholarly literature on this often neglected topicundefineda topic crucial for its clinical and conceptual implications. (Laurie Levinson, PhD)

Teaching Effective Supervision of Child and Adolescent Analysis is a timely, masterful, and comprehensive contribution to the sparse literature on supervision of child and adolescent treatment. The detailed rich examples from clinical experience will be of value to all who supervise and treat children psychologically. A must for child analysts who wish to become effective supervisors. (Wendy Olesker, PhD, New York Psychoanalytic Review)

Helping Young Children Grow by Erna Furman, previously out of print, is now available on Kindle and can be purchased in the Amazon Kindle bookstore. The original book and the three part series are currently available, with plans to publish the Teacher’s Edition within the year.


 “Helping Young Children Grow is a comprehensive course in child development, written in non-technical terms and suitable for students, parents, educators, medical students, and mental health professionals- and anyone who works with children and parents. It is a clear and practical guide to understanding children, child development and personality development, written from a psychodynamic perspective by a renowned child psychoanalyst. The book uses a three part format: 1) Relationships in Early Childhood, 2) Learning Self-Control and Coping with Daily Tasks, and 3) Using Inner Resources to Enrich Life, and includes a chapter on Bereavement in childhood. The author, Erna Furman, was associated with the Hanna Perkins Center, the Cleveland Center for Research in Child Development and the Hanna Perkins School, and this course in child development was developed as a project of the Center. The research group collaborated to create this high school course, which was first used and taught in the Shaker Heights, Ohio, school system and in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, and has been and is being currently used as a "teach the teacher course." The book takes a conversational tone and uses a Socratic approach, and is accessible to both lay and professional readers.”

Book on Ethiopian Children , "Sheba and Solomon's Return" By Nathan Szajnberg, MD

"An exciting, thought-provoking and stimulating book which ... reads like a novel. We could not put it down and eagerly followed the lives of the forty-six children, their parents, and their playful and moving interactions over three years with Dr. Szajnberg.

This is his third book in the series supported by the Wallerstein Research Fellowship and well meets its goal of supporting psychoanalytic research.  Dr. Szajnberg is a caring physician, a participant observer like his models Freud and Levy-Strauss, an empirical psychoanalyst using validated and reliable instruments, and a social activist pointing toward future interventions..... The author combines the intensive, long-term investigation of a psychoanalytic clinician and anthropologist with the empirical methods of a psychologist to arrive at striking findings, to question received knowledge, and to suggest crucial interventions in populations worldwide to facilitate positive growth in dislocated, traumatized and endangered groups. 

This engaging study of Falasha/Falasha Mura will appeal to everyone. Like one of the Ethiopian children, we would like to keep Dr. Szajnberg with us for longer. The book will have special appeal to all child workers and developmental researchers and should refute those who believe that psychoanalysis is no longer relevant. "
- Kerry Kelly Novick and Jack Novick, PhD
