About the author (2008)

Judith L. Mitrani is a Training and Supervising Analyst at The Psychoanalytic Center of California and The Newport Psychoanalytic Institute and an active member of the International Psycho-Analytical Association. Her interest in the area of primitive mental states has lead to numerous publications in both international and American journals, and her work has been translated in six languages. She is the author of Ordinary People and Extra-Ordinary Protections: A Post-Kleinian Approach to the Treatment of Primitive Mental States (2001) and is also co-editor--with her analyst/husband Dr. Theodore Mitrani--of the book Encounters with Autistic States: A Memorial Tribute to Frances Tustin (1997). Dr. Mitrani is also the founding and current Chair of the Frances Tustin Memorial Trust. She supervizes and lectures around the world on topics related to the treatment of autistic states in adults and the technique with the infantile transference. Her clinical and theoretical perspectives derive predominantly from the work of Melanie Klein, Wilfred Bion, Donald Winnicott and, most importantly, Frances Tustin's work on autism. She is in private practice with adults in Los Angeles, California.
