Finally, the presenters talk about diversity in the counselling room. Melanie Klein was an Austrian-British psychoanalyst who worked with Sigmund Freud but ultimately parted ways with him. While Freud believed that we as humans are driven by libido i. Klein looked at how very young children initially view the world, and begin to regulate themselves, in response to their experiences of relationships. The youngster can take this split within themselves, and it can even contribute to the development of borderline personality disorder in which the person has not been able to fully integrate the various parts of self. This theory has contributed to the move from foster care being institution-based to foster children being placed with families.

This collection of theories discusses the effect of the internalized relations with primary caretakers during infancy i. According to object relations theorists, children do not only internalize the object itself, but also the entire relationship. The infant internalizes two sets of object relations— both positive and negative— which include representations of the self, the object, and the emotion that links between the two. Although Melanie Klein bases her theory on Freud, she contends that his suggested time frame is flawed, with the superego present from birth, and the oedipal complex occurring in the first year of life.

Melanie Klein was a controversial yet highly influential and powerful member of the British Psychoanalytical Society for over thirty years. Her theories about the development of a child's inner world transformed psychoanalysis and have had a deep and far-reaching impact. Although profoundly rooted in Sigmund Freud's thinking, Melanie Klein asserted that all human beings relate to others from birth and, consequently the transference in psychoanalytic treatment is always alive and active.
