Upcoming "Why Psychoanalysis?"
For those interested in exploring the field of parent infant psychotherapy but unable to commit to our full program, we offers various less intensive learning opportunities.
Our monthly seminar meets for two hours one evening each month and examines contemporary views on psychopathology in infancy and appropriate techniques of treatment. Specific topics include depression in babies, autism, adoption, and interaction disorders. Participants in the seminar and faculty present case material for discussion.
Clinical placementsare offered to monthly seminar attendants. Those doing clinical work may opt to work with a supervisor in individual sessions.
Another option offered by the Parent-Infant Program is infant home observation with weekly group supervision. The Group Supervision Seminar on Infant Observation (following the Tavistock Clinic model) is open to a limited number of applicants interested in undertaking individual visits of an hour a week to a family with a newborn, and following the individual development of the infant and its relationships in the family for one or two-year.
