The Mother and Her Child: Clinical Aspects of Attachment, Separation, and Loss By Salman Akhtar... This volume, based on works presented in March 2011 at the prestigious Annual Margaret Mahler Symposium in Philadelphia, examines the profound impact of the dynamics of primary object relations on childhood development and behavior. The Margaret Mahler Symposium began in 1970 and the works discussed at the symposium began to be published in annual volumes in 1991. The collection at hand includes an introduction, four papers and subsequent discussions, and a conclusion; each piece is a contribution by a separate author collaborating to elucidate the complicated topic of maternal–child relations.

Abstract

This volume, based on works presented in March 2011 at the prestigious Annual Margaret Mahler Symposium in Philadelphia, examines the profound impact of the dynamics of primary object relations on childhood development and behavior. The Margaret Mahler Symposium began in 1970 and the works discussed at the symposium began to be published in annual volumes in 1991. The collection at hand includes an introduction, four papers and subsequent discussions, and a conclusion; each piece is a contribution by a separate author collaborating to elucidate the complicated topic of maternal–child relations. While the mother's role is consistently instrumental in childhood development, parenting itself is continually affected by industry, technology, and social organizations. The formula‐feeding mother, the foster mother, the stepmother – the implications of the word “mother” evolve with societal changes. The strengths of this compilation examining the relationship between The Mother and Her Child lie in its practicality and relevance to our current society, in which the nuclear family is a fading institution. Akhtar's introduction to the volume outlines 12 categories of maternal tasks: holding; containing; protecting and nourishing; awakening the libidinal potential of her child's body; introducing the child to his inner world; evoking the core self
