Event description

Description

A mother learns to enjoy her baby: parent-infant psychotherapy and art therapy in the treatment of intergenerational separation-individuation struggles.

This talk is an introduction to the use of parent-infant psychotherapy and art therapy in the exploration of the case of Janis, whose separation-individuation problems from her own mother became exacerbated by the birth of her baby. This event awakened the experience of Janis’ traumatic past, preventing her from enjoying her baby.

Being with the baby in my presence, helped Janis face and ultimately overcome her anxieties about being a mother. Art therapy was incorporated into the work, offering Janis ego support, which enriched the evolution of symbol formation.

I will summarize the sessions, written as observations, helping us identify early development, and recognizable parallel processes between mother and baby over the course of therapy.
