Mothers, Babies and the Space Between: Psychotherapy with Vulnerable Dyads in the Earliest Years
Clinical knowledge and neuroscience have converged in supporting our understanding of the earliest relationship between parent and child as the basis for future health and learning. But how do we incorporate this knowing into our work in support of parents and their young children? This three session seminar offers a brief introduction to parent-infant psychotherapy with a special focus on building reflective and regulatory capacities in work with parents facing mental health and substance use challenges.
