Nel 1958, Annie che lavorava come logopedista infantile all’ospedale Salpêtrière di Parigi, fonda insieme al professor Daniel Widlöcher il Dipartimento di psicoterapia infantile di cui è stata per molti anni  responsabile e dedicato il suo tempo alla formazione di molti psicoterapeuti infantili.

l’IPA, con l’apporto di  Anne Marie Sandler di cui Annie era molto amica, crea il Committee on Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis- COCAP, che contribuisce al riconoscimento degli psicoanalisti infantili in tutto il mondo. COCAP la nomina, insieme ad altri colleghi europei, analista con funzioni di training dell’IPA nell’ambito della psicoanalisi infantile e dell’adolescenza.

Nelle sue pubblicazioni sull’analisi del bambino, Annie Anzieu ha sottolineato il ruolo delle relazioni corporee (body relations) e degli involucri psichici nel rapporto madre bambino assieme alla necessità di definire gli affetti. Ha pubblicato inoltre numerosi lavori sulla sessualità femminile. Nel suo libro “La femme sans qualités”, ha affermato che la psiche femminile risente delle rappresentazioni dell’interno del suo corpo e della sua ricettività.

Thanks to Anne Marie Sandler, her very good friend, the IPA created the Committee On Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis (COCAP), that had helped to recognize child psychoanalysts around the world. COCAP elected Annie Anzieu among other European colleagues as Training Analysts in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis of the IPA.

Among her publications about child analysis, she emphasized the role of the body relations and psychic envelopes between mother and child, and the major needs to label affects.

In addition she published about women sexuality. In her book “La femme sans qualités”, she claimed that a woman’s psyche is influenced by representations of her body’s interior and receptivity.
