Description

This book presents an interdisciplinary discussion between researchers and clinicians about trauma in
the relationship between infants and their parents. It makes an innovative contribution to the field of infant
mental health in bringing together previously separated paradigms of relational trauma from
psychoanalysis, attachment and the neurosciences. With contributions from a range of experts, areas of
discussion include:intergenerational transmission of relational trauma and earliest interventionthe nature
of the traumatising encounter between parent and infantthe therapeutic possibilities of parent-infant
psychotherapy in changing the trajectory of transmitted traumatraining and supporting professionals
working with traumatised parents and infants.Relational Trauma in Infancy will be of particular interest to
trainee and qualified child and adult psychotherapists, clinical psychologists, child and adult
psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, health care professionals and social workers.
Reviews

"In an era characterized by marked progress in our understanding of the neurobiological substrates and
processes underpinning parenting, early development and the sequelae of early adversity in particular,
clinicians working with infants and parents all the more feel the need for the translation of these basic
research findings to their clinical practice. This book provides a superb attempt to bridge this gap. It
provides a compelling case for the value of a relational approach to the study and treatment of parents
and infants struggling with the consequences of early adversity, and in breaking the vicious cycle of
trauma across the generations. This book goes far beyond simple models of trauma and their impact on
later development. It effectively paints a much more complex picture of the consequences of early
disruptive experiences, and their effects on child development and parenting. Central in this volume is the
focus on the mind of mothers and infants, that is how mothers and infants co-create their internal and
external worlds, often in maladaptive and distorted ways, and how this co-creation can be changed as a
result of parent-infant interventions. As yet few carefully documented psychodynamic case studies are
available in this context. This volume, written by leading experts in the field of parent-infant therapy,
therefore promises to be a leading source of information for both clinicians and researchers involved in
parent-infant work for years to come." -
