The HMT was formed in November 2005 to continue the aims and publishing activities of the Roland Harris Educational Trust, which for more than 30 years had published as the Clunie Press. The stated aims of the Trust are:

To advance the education of the public in general and in particular of those closely involved with young people, by promoting the understanding of children and young people and of their emotional and intellectual development in the family, school and community. To further this purpose by means of the publication of clinical experience and original research findings undertaken both in this country and abroad in the fields of psychoanalysis, human relations and related spheres.

The HMT was inaugurated in July 2007 with the publication of two books associated with Martha Harris: The Story of Infant Development by Romana Negri and Martha Harris, and a new edition of Your Teenager by Martha Harris. Read more To read The Harris Meltzer Trust: Ten Years On click here
