During her lifetime, Francoise Dolto revolutionized the psychoanalytic understanding of childhood. As an early pioneer, she emphasized that the child is to be recognized from birth as a person. As a gifted and innovative clinician, Dolto developed her ideas about the unconscious image of the body. An image that is unique to each individual and linked to both a person s history and narcissism, rather then their physicality. It is the symbolic incarnation of a person s desires. Dolto began her career as a member of the IPA, was admired by Winnicot, close to Lacan and influenced by Morgenstern. Her life witnessed an extraordinary evolution from the conservatism of her parents, through the second World War, to the turbulence of Paris in the 1950s and '60s. In the succeeding years, Dolto made a number of original contributions to the understanding of psychosis, neonatology, female sexuality, education and religion. Although controversial, she was able to write both for the general public and for professional colleagues. In 1979, Dolto opened La Maison Verte, as a specialist center for the practical application of her theories. Similar centers have since been created around the world. Dolto continued to write and teach until her death in 1988."

This comprehensive handbook addresses the provision of therapeutic help for babies and their parents when their attachment relationship is derailed and a risk is posed to the baby's development. Drawing on clinical and research data from the biological and psychological sciences, this book presents a treatment approach that is comprehensive, flexible and sophisticated, whilst also being clear and easy to understand. The first section, The Theory of Parent Infant Psychotherapy, offers the reader a theoretical framework for understanding the emotional-interactional environment within which infant development takes place. It draws upon psychoanalysis, attachment and developmental research to describe how babies’ minds and development are sculpted by the dynamics of the relationship with their primary love figures. The second section, The Therapeutic Process, invites the reader into the consulting room to participate in a detailed examination of the relational process in the clinical encounter. The third section, Clinical Papers, provides case material to illustrate the unfolding of the therapeutic process. Written by a team of experienced clinicians, writers, teachers and researchers in the field of infant development and psychopathology, The Practice of Psychoanalytic Parent-Infant Psychotherapy, is unique in its systematic approach to describing the theoretical rationale and clinical process of therapy. It will be of great interest to all professionals working with children and their families, including child psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, and clinical and developmental psychologists.
