His work on mentalization-based treatment of infants and research on children with ADHD has greatly enriched the understanding of what psychoanalysts can offer to young clients and their parents, reinforcing the value of seeing young clients as individuals whose inner conflicts and need to be understood and contained by the adults with whom they interact.

Dr. Salomonsson’s book, Psychoanalytic Therapy with Infants and Parents: Practice, Theory and Results was published by Routledge in 2014. Psychoanalytic Dialogues with Children and Adolescents, co-written with Majlis Winberg Salomonsson, is scheduled to be published by Routledge this year.
