This is the first full-length exploration of psychotherapy for those who have experienced the loss of a baby during pregnancy or in the first few weeks of life. Using many case reports, Irving G. Leon integrates recent work on narcissism, mourning, and short-term therapy with more traditional psychoanalytic theory and treatment.
