Not to make her entry into this forum any more difficult, I thought I'd add my input. I first encountered Johanna Tabin when the American Journal of Psychiatry asked me to review her book on the previously ignored sexual thoughts and wishes of very small children. Already disillusioned by the authoritarian stance of the psychoanalytic establishment, I took on the assignment with considerable misgivings. To my utter surprise, the book was a page turner for me, forcing me to rethink many areas of adult function. So much was I impressed by the quality of her thinking and research that I located her in Chicago and started a friendship and collegial relationship that has only grown in the 12 years since I was sent her book. What the subscribers to BOL will get from her is a thoughtful, non-doctrinaire, friendly assessment of a clinical situation that will enable all of us to see the patient in greater depth. Thank you, Gil, for inviting Johanna to join our faculty.
