Event:The ‘Replacement Child’: Clinical Work to Reclaim the Self
Duration:6pm - 9pm GMT / 1pm - 4pm EST
Extra Info:Speakers: Kristina Schellinski & Dr Zack Eleftheriadou

Families face intense psychic pain when a child has deceased or goes missing. For complex reasons, the effects of loss and trauma can remain unresolved and unconscious across one or more generations. The impact can be especially powerful for the child born after the loss, but also affect surviving siblings of children born years later.

During this evening seminar, we will discuss how ‘the replacement child’ dynamics create a fragmented identity, relational difficulties and a sense of existential insecurity. Through clinical material, our speakers will discuss how these unconscious themes can be sensitively considered within the therapeutic relationship and how we can accompany replacement children to find their true self.
