“There is no such thing as a baby without maternal care” – Winnicott, 1940
Donald Winnicott, a British pediatrician and psychoanalyst, made the famous statement in 1940 that has changed the way we think about infants. The Infant- Parent Psychotherapy (IPP) is an infant/child – parent relationship led intervention, developed by Elizabeth Tuters & Sally Doulis.
This model emphasizes pregnancy, birth and the early development of the infant/young child within the context of relationships – past and present, family and culture.
The model of IPP is called OUR – Observation-Understanding-Reflection – wherein play is the medium, and change occurs through the action of observation, understanding and reflection. The participants will have the opportunity to learn about the treatment model of dynamic Infant-Parent Psychotherapy through selected reading materials and a presentation of clinical material.
This IPP model is a treatment intervention for parents and young children, as well as older children.
