Anna Freud

Anna Freud (1896 – 1982) entered the field of psychoanalysis as a young woman, when her father began psychoanalyzing her. She began a lifetime of work focused on child psychology, saying once: "I don’t think I’d be a good subject for biography—not enough ‘action'! You would say all there is to say in a few sentences: She spent her life with children!"
