Sigmund Freud memorial in Hampstead, North London. Sigmund and Anna Freud lived at 20 Maresfield Gardens, near this statue. Their house is now a museum dedicated to Freud's life and work. The building behind the statue is the Tavistock Clinic, a major psychological health care institution.
Anna Freud lived between December 3, 1895 to October 1982. She was the daughter of Sigmund Freud and considered the founder of psychoanalytic child psychology. She even set up the Hampstead War Nursery which provided care for over 80 children. She focused more on ego and also wrote a book called "The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense" This book became a movement of ego psychology.
Rebecca Coffey, whose new novel is “Hysterical: Anna Freud’s Story,” says she was first planning the book — in which Sigmund Freud is depicted trying to analyze away his daughter’s lesbianism — as biography. In real life, Anna Freud lived for more than 50 years with partner (and Tiffany heiress) Dorothy Burlingham, says Coffey.

The following co-authored article uses Anna Freud's "three lessons for teachers" to propose a radical re-thinking of sociological theories of learning. See: Farley, Lisa & Judith P. Robertson.
