EXPANDING OUR UNDERSTANDING OF CLINICAL PROCESS: What microanalysis of sessional material can inform us about the practitioner’s contributions to ‘therapeutic’ processes in parent-infant work

 

The paper considers therapeutic process in parent infant psychotherapy at the micro-level of moment-to-moment interactions between mother, infant and therapist. The focus is on moments when trauma infiltrates the interactions, with manifestations of internal and interactive rupture between therapist and patients, and processes of repair between the three participants. Particular consideration is given to the role of procedural processes and the relationship between verbal and procedural in both rupture and repair. Clinical material is brought for illustration and discussion.

 

Tessa Baradon trained in Public Health at Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem, and realised that branch of her professional life in setting up and directing the first Pregnancy Advisory Service in Israel. Shortly after her move to the UK she trained in child psychotherapy and psychoanalysis at the Anna Freud Centre, London.  Gravitating to work with the early years, she started to practice parent infant psychotherapy at the Marborough Family Service and then went on to develop the Parent Infant Project at the Anna Freud Centre. The model of psychoanalytic parent infant psychotherapy developed under her leadership has become a well-recognised intervention nationally and internationally. TB’s interest in understanding infant mental health belief systems across cultures led to a 6-year collaboration with the School of Human and Community Development at the University of Witwatersrand where she was appointed as Visiting Adjunct Professor. Her current research interests focus on multimodal analysis of clinical process.
