The Lacanian psychoanalyst works with the notion of the subject as a ‘speaking being’, but the child subject brings particular exigencies to the psychoanalytic work. Contributors attend to these exigencies in their essays by articulating the precise particularities of the direction of the treatment and psychoanalytic work with children. Contributions consider and explore the effects of new technologies, bio-medicine, and the discourses of global capitalism and neo-liberalism upon the constitution of new child subjectivities and their correlative psychopathologies; inventions and reinventions of the role and function of the ‘father’; the scope and value of differential diagnosis; the child as ‘symptom’ in and of ‘the system’; and ultimately, guidelines for a specifically Lacanian direction of the treatment with children.
