Infant Observation is an essential part of training to become a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst. This course offers mental health professionals an opportunity to observe the subtleties of affect regulation and the unfolding of an intimate relationship between an infant and family, without the pressure of having to intervene. Observations are narratives and are shared and reflected upon, in rotation, within the seminar group.
At the end of the seminars the participants will be able to:
- Learn about the origin and process of infant observation seminars as developed at the Tavistock Centre and the British Institute of Psychoanalysis.
- Discuss narrative reflections by members of the infant observation seminar who will share aspects of their learning from observing infant/parent development/in vivo.
- Apply this method to further understand the importance of early development to psychic life of adults in psychotherapy/psychoanalysis.
This program was developed in collaboration with CAPCT (Canadian Association of Psychoanalytic Child Therapists & Hincks-Dellcrest Centre).
