About Anna Freud

  • Anna Freud (3 December 1895 – 9 October 1982) was an Austrian-British psychoanalyst.
  • She was born in Vienna, the sixth and youngest child of Sigmund Freud and Martha Bernays.
  • She followed the path of her father and contributed to the field of psychoanalysis.
  • Alongside Melanie Klein, she may be considered the founder of psychoanalytic child psychology.Compared to her father, her work emphasized the importance of the ego and its normal "developmental lines" as well as incorporating a distinctive emphasis on collaborative work across a range of analytical and observational contexts.After the Freud family were forced to leave Vienna in 1938 with the advent of the Nazi regime in Austria, she resumed her psychoanalytic practice and her pioneering work in child psychology in London, establishing the Hampstead Child Therapy Course and Clinic in 1952 (now the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families) as a centre for therapy, training and research work.
