The seminar leaders will share the teaching, each doing one semester at a time.

This workshop will focus on clinical cases presented by the participants, upon rotation. Psychoanalytic, developmental and system constructs and their application to the clinical work will be the focus of the Work Group. Our consultation approach will illustrate the principles involved in Infant-Parent Psychotherapy – a dyadic relational intervention developed by the teachers, which involves the child/children and parent/parents and the concept of the third, the therapist. We will integrate the inevitability and usefulness of the transference/ countertransference phenomena and the enactment in the therapeutic space of triangulation and the intergenerational transmission of unresolved issues from the past appearing and affecting the interactions each with the other in the present relationships. This model focuses on the centrality of relationships, and uses reflective observation of the relational matrix, and emphasises the importance of play.
