- Melanie Klein (1882 - 1960) : Melanie Klein refers to an early child analyst whose theory emphasized the importance of the mother-child relationship and the development of the super ego during the oral stage of development. By using Play therapy, Klein believed that child analysis could begin as early as two (2) years of age. Klein's ideas concerning the psychology of children were usually in conflict with those of Anna Freud.
