The latest volume in this esteemed series features special sections devoted to investigating the topic of transgender children and to revisiting Berta Bornstein’s seminal classic, the "Frankie" case. Other contributions include clinical case illustrations that illuminate how child analysis tutors psychoanalytic technique for adult patients, as well as reflections on the frequently neglected topic of post-termination in child analysis. A section highlighting applied psychoanalysis includes a probing discussion of the role of sports in the development of boys’ superego formation and a reading of the character of Achilles in The Iliad from the perspective of sibling narratives and non-linear growth.
