Through presentations, examples and discussion, two experienced child psychotherapists will enable participants to gain a greater understanding of the infant’s early emotional experience of the ways in which the mother-infant relationship is formed- both in health and in pathology, and of how these early experiences influence and impact on adult couple relationships in later life.

Brief Outline of content:

  1. Presentation on early emotional experience and mother-infant interaction, illustrated by vignettes from infant observation and clinical work with children and adolescents.
  2. Presentation on couple work. Vignettes of clinical material will be used to outline different scenarios, highlighting the link between early experience and adult couple relationships.
  3. Participants will be asked to bring case material, which will be discussed in small groups and then fed back to the group as a whole.
  4. The workshop will end with a Q&A session and an opportunity to review the day as a whole.
