The way in which children experience major crises in their lives has a profound effect on their emotional and psychological development. Beginning with a discussion of personality development and the origins of behavioural disorders, Dr Wolff goes on to examine in detail a number of stressful situations. She looks at the principles of child psychotherapy and at the way society as a whole can contribute to the prevention and relief of psychiatric problems in children. Throughout, Dr Wolff aims not only to inform, but also to assist everyone concerned with children towards a greater awareness of the individual child's inner world.
