An article by Hanna Perkins’ Barbara Streeter, on the history and impact of the psychoanalytic school, has been published in the latest edition of The American Psychoanalyst, the quarterly magazine of the American Psychoanalytic Association. Streeter is School Director of The Hanna Perkins School, and she chairs the faculty of the Hanna Perkins Center Training Program in Child Psychoanalysis.
In the brief article, Streeter uses non-technical language to highlight how Hanna Perkins and the nation’s other psychoanalytic schools were founded. In specific examples from daily life at the school, she also provides insight how Hanna Perkins helps children to constructively address the typical issues that arise in children at the developmental stage in which they begin going to school.
The article is available in the PDF version of The American Psychoanalyst, beginning on Page 22.
