Description

Developmental Psychoanalysis Today: A Relationship-Based Perspective

This workshop will consider how analytic practice can be affected by thinking about infants and children, asking how (and whether) we can talk about babies and patients in the same breath. Video illustrations will be included, and case material will be considered.

We will bring together what remains vital in the classical psychoanalytic traditions with the emerging intersubjectivist-Relational sensibility, including new findings in the areas of attachment, infant-parent interaction research, developmental neuroscience, trauma, and the like. We will consider analogies between infant-parent and patient-therapist interaction patterns, how looking at babies brings the lived experience of the body back into analysis, and helps us think about the non-verbal, emotional and interactive realms. An orientation to the history of developmental psychoanalysis and the place of infancy and childhood in different analytic approaches will be offered. The different “analytic babies” are described and compared--Freud’s baby, Klein’s baby, Winnicott’s baby, the Relational baby….
