Abstract

This thesis is a study of recovery, reparation and developmental progress in a
severely deprived child in intensive psychoanalytic treatment. The methodology
involved the detailed analysis of a single case study, using grounded theory. The
study was designed to analyse the process of treatment and discover how the
child made developmental progress. Implications for psychoanalytic technique in
working with children who have endured severe deprivation is examined. Some
of the key findings add to existing knowledge about psychotherapeutic theory and
practice, particularly in relation to reverie, attunement and containment in the
context of the child's experience of gaps and breaks in treatment.
