Anna Freud Sketch - Famous Psychotherapists

Anna Freud was, as you may have guessed, the daughter of Sigmund Freud. While she is not as famous as her father, she did write some influential work. In particular she postulated many additional defence mechanisms and furthermore she also made important contributions to child psychology.
In particular it was her contributions to our knowledge about defence mechanisms that prompted me to sketch her and include her in my list of famous psychotherapists. As an aside, I have to remark on how she looks surprisingly hip for someone born in 1895!
