Where in the World Did Mahler’s Separation-Individuation Theory Go?: A Concluding Commentary
Ann G. Smolen
Growing Up: Revisiting Child Development Theories and their Application to Patients of all Ages is a veritable treasure trove of the history of psychoanalytic perspectives on development. The contributors to this edited collection demonstrate the value of Margaret Mahler’s separation-individuation theory, including the integration of attachment theory, trauma theory, and intersubjectivity of Mahler’s object relations theory.

This is a landmark collection of essays on child development that is relevant for clinical work with patients of all ages. Within its pages, a stellar constellation of pioneering researchers and gifted clinicians explicate the intrapsychic in interactive terms and trace the interpersonal to its intrapsychic origins. As a result, we find ourselves on a solid platform to launch newer refinements in developmental theory and in clinical practice!
