Anna Freud loved this way of working. The students never got enough, no class ever ended on time. They insisted on posing new questions and hearing what she had to say. She not only willingly stayed on – caught in the excitement of the exchange – she never tired of responding to their


challenges. Indeed, year after year she insisted on a schedule which had us teaching more than twice our normal load. . . . We always looked forward to her visits, and we were delighted when she left – her pace was more than we could manage for long.
