Anna Freud (1895-1982) was a pioneering child psychoanalyst.

Her father, Sigmund Freud, was the founder of psychoanalysis – but Anna is not just remembered for being Freud’s daughter.

She was a key figure in the psychoanalytic movement, making important theoretical and technical innovations, and brought about huge changes to how children are seen, understood and cared for.

This resource explores Anna Freud’s life and work.

We will be looking at:

  • Her early life
  • Her work as a teacher
  • Her psychoanalytic career
  • Her landmark contributions to psychoanalysis and education
