SIDELIGHTS: Judith Mishne once told CA: "My motivation for writing emanates out of my years of graduate school instruction. Books evolve from courses I teach and from clinical experiences as a psychotherapist and child therapist. My work has been greatly influenced by psychoanalytic theory and principles of social work practice. The writing process flows quite easily for me, as I concentrate and strive (as in teaching) to clarify complex clinical and theoretical material. I write and teach via the case method in my effort to illustrate and integrate theory and practice."
