The Magic Years of Selma Fraiberg: Clinician, Researcher, and Writer

A Conference in honor of her 100th birthday

Selma Fraiberg’s integration of social work and psychoanalysis had a profound impact on infant mental health, child development, psychoanalysis, and the larger community. Beginning with group work with disadvantaged children and an unconventional psychoanalytic training, Fraiberg’s interventions with blind children, her groundbreaking innovations in infant mental health, and her prolific writings--including her classic work, The Magic Years--have left a lasting legacy.
