Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

'This book presents the remarkable project of parent-infant psychotherapy as developed in individual initiatives around the world. The contributors include experienced and distinguished practitioners who have pioneered treatment programmes uniquely suited to their locality and its culture. They explain their theoretical models lucidly and provide lively and poignant case accounts. The reader is introduced to an array of small children and their families from contexts as diverse as Sub-Saharan Africa, Japan, Australia the US, UK, Brazil, Italy and Switzerland. It is fascinating to note how eloquently children and parents worldwide express their emotional lives and respond to reflective work. The book is a rich clinical and theoretical resource to anyone working with, or interested in the early years. Innovations in Parent-Infant Psychotherapy is also and excellent academic resource for courses on the early years.'
- Dr. Meira Likierman, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, member of the Infant Mental Health Team, Tavistock Clinic London.

'This book describes an amazing variety of innovative interventions with babies and their parents across several continents. The contributors are to be commended for their creativity in applying psychoanalysis in such unusual settings and to such evident effect. Psychoanalytic approaches to infant mental health services are now truly established in the international canon of so called early interventions.’
- Angela Joyce, Fellow of the Institute of Psychoanalysis in London; Parent-Infant Psychotherapist at the Anna Freud centre
