Robin Anderson

Beating the Bounds: A Clinical Investigation of the Psychoanalytic Frame

Robin Anderson is a training analyst in adult, child and adolescent analysis at the Institute of Psychoanalysis. He is also a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist and from 1991 was consultant psychiatrist at the Tavistock Clinic and until 2000 was chair of  the Adolescent Department. Whilst there he developed a special interest in adolescent suicide and self harm, an interest that has continued. He retired from this post in 2007 but still continues to teach the senior staff there.  He now concentrates on teaching and working in his private psychoanalytic practice.  He has published papers, numerous book chapters and has edited two books: Clinical Lectures on Klein and Bion and Facing It Out: Clinical Perspectives on Adolescent Disturbance with Anna Dartington.

Lisa Miller

The establishment of boundaries in infancy and early childhood with some reflections on how clinical work with disturbed children demonstrates early failure in this process

Lisa Miller is now retired from clinical work at the Tavistock Clinic where previously she was a consultant child psychotherapist, but she is still active in the profession and engaged in teaching, supervision, lecturing and consultation. She has a particular interest in work with very young children and chaired the clinic’s under fives service for some years; and also in infant observation. She has been editor of both the Journal of Child Psychotherapy and of the Journal of Infant Observation.
