Cured of Childhood
How does a child whom life has hurt become resilient? Jacques Lecomte examines every aspect of a child's environment that can help him or her overcome misfortune. He stresses the crucial need for markers in the reconstruction of the child's personality, and on the importance of finding meaning in suffering. This is a thorough study of resilience, its foundations and how it works. It is also a polemical work which questions the role played by psychotherapists in building resilience. Jacques Lecomte argues that they are not the only ones who can do this - and that sometimes psychotherapists can do more harm than good. The author suggests specific plans of action, for families and children, so that those who are suffering and in pain may learn to become resilient and happy. This book offers a powerful message of hope - happiness, says the author, lies in acquiring a better understanding of resilience. Jacques Lecomte is a doctor in psychology and a lecturer at the University of Paris-X. He specialises in training professionals who work with children and is secretary general of the International Observatory on Resilience, presided by Boris Cyrulnik.
The End of the Couch ?
Why do psychoanalysts refuse to review their methods, while simultaneously recognising that life-styles have evolved and that new pathologies have come into existence? Why, for example, do they remain devoted to the psychoanalysts couch, while realising that certain cures are at a dead-end? This is a controversial work on the challenges facing psychoanalysis a field that had its hour of glory in the 1960s but has since been somewhat discredited. Raymond Cahn is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.
Nicole Delattre, Daniel Widlöcher
The task that the authors, Nicole Delattre et Daniel Widlöcher, have set themselves in this book is to take stock of what is useful and reliable in psychoanalysis today. Daniel Widlöcher sets out his view of this unique discipline, and the great concepts that it brings together, in addition to observing its pioneers and different spheres. In particular, he outlines his vision of the future of psychoanalysis, which is presently enjoying a revival. A professor at the University Pierre et Marie Curie, Daniel Widlöcher has for many years headed the psychiatry department at the Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris. He is the president of the International Association of Psychoanalysis and is notably the author of Métapsychologie du sens, of Logiques de la dépression and of Nouvelles Cartes de la psychanalyse. Nicole Delattre is a professor of philosophy

Children Without Language
I have been treating children [with language difficulties] for the past ten years, and making clinical observations from three theoretical points of view: I have used linguistics, psychoanalysis and recent finding in the cognitive sciences. By taking into account and examining the difficulties encountered when working with such children, and by paying attention to the specific character of their development, we will be able to provide essential information for anyone wishing to reflect seriously on a central issue for all of us: Why speak? writes Laurent Danon-Boileau. Laurent Danon-Boileau is a linguist, psychoanalyst and writer.
