A Study Day on Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with Infants and Parents: Presenting highly relevant contemporary concepts that can be effectively applied to therapy with children and adults.

Bjorn Salomonsson, Training Child/Adolescent/Adult Psychoanalyst, Swedish Psychoanalytic Society
presented by CAPCT & CICAPP

8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Toronto Lawn Tennis Club, 44 Price St., Toronto

Psychotherapy with Infants and Parents (PIP) is unique among therapies by inviting human beings, intimately linked but developmentally far apart, to remedy their emotions and relationships. The therapist's job is to discern the psychological roots to the parent's depression, anxiety, ambivalence, role confusion, or marital difficulties - and to the baby's depression, distress, and contact difficulties. To achieve this, s/he must descend to subterranean communicative pathways that interfere with the parents' and the child's wishes for a harmonious relationship. Such expeditions are often painful and terrifying for patients and therapists alike. Health care organizations and staff are also affected by the anxiety surrounding distressed dyads, which poses specific challenges.

Learning Objectives

The attendees will have an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of early communication and development which will be an invaluable experience for the psychotherapists/ analysts who work with parents, parent-child dyads, older children, adolescents, families, as well as individual adults.

He is also Associate Professor at the Unit of Reproductive Health, Department of Women’s and Children’s Health, Karolinska Institutet. His research and publications focus on psychoanalytically inspired parent-infant therapies (theory, practice, and outcomes), child analysis and the ‘weaving thoughts’ case presentation method.
