In this early evening online discussion group, the first in a new series offered by Tavistock Relationships, Andrew Balfour will present a new paper which explores the link between parenting difficulties and couple relationship issues in psychotherapeutic work with parental couples.
He will examine the social policy context of couple psychotherapy and the resistances it can evoke, which has led to an emphasis on ‘parenting’ rather than ‘couple’ interventions in the historic development of family service provision in the UK. And he will present a clinical case, drawing on the concepts of shared unconscious phantasy and enactment in the analytic session to elucidate defensive and developmental possibilities of working at the interface between ‘parenting’ and ‘partnering’.
This event will be held using the video conferencing application Zoom. In the first half of the 90-minute session, Andrew Balfour will present his paper; the second half will be taken up with an audience discussion of the issues raised.
