About the Author

Lorraine Rose is a clinical psychologist, psychoanalytic psychotherapist and organizational consultant who has worked in private practice for over 40 years. She has lectured at a number of universities and taught in teaching programs for trainees in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and established Infant Observation for the Institute of Psychiatry Infant Mental Health Course, NSW. Her private practice work has included work with children, adolescents, adults and families. A particular focus has been adults who have never bonded as babies, needing longer-term intensive treatment. Lorraine studied group phenomena at the post graduate level and was a member/board member of the Australian Institute of Socio-Analysis (AISA) now known as Group Relations Australia (GRA). Her previous book, Learning to Love: The developing relationships between mother, father and baby during the first year, was published by ACER Press, 2000


"At last: you are not patient 2794 or Syndrome XY: you are a whole human being with a personal history, a family, community and a changing body. Lorraine Roses enthralling book is unlike anything I have seen before and twice as satisfying. This is your mind and mine from first burp to senior reflections - a story all of us want to understand as we grow. Now we can." Robyn Williams, Science broadcaster
"I cant recommend this book highly enough. Presenting complex and fascinating aspects of the development of individuals in contemporary life, this absorbing and satisfyingly accessible book is a must read; it is a have-to-have book." Jill Henry, counsellor/psychotherapist, former publisher for Cambridge Press and Oxford Press in Australia
