The Drama of Being a Child
Miller believes that violence and crime in society have their roots in conventional child rearing and in education which can create a childhood prison. Miller describes how her discoveries can create freedom from this prison. This edition has been revised since her renunciation of psychoanalysis.
'Rare and compelling in its compassion and its unassuming eloquence...her examples are so vivid and so ordinary they touch the hurt child in us all' NEW YORK MAGAZINE
Alice Miller lives in France. For more than twenty years she taught and practised psychoanalysis. In 1973, due to her spontaneous painting she discovered her childhood history. Now, she radically questions the validity of psychoanalytic theories. As a result, in 1988 she resigned from the International Psychhoanalytical Association and, in 1995, revised THE DRAMA OF BEING A CHILD.
