About this course

The PPIP Society, the Anna Freud Centre professional association for psychoanalytic parent infant psychotherapists, will be holding a series of webinars about working therapeutically with infant and parents online. Presenters will bring a psychoanalytic orientation to issues such as adaptations in focus of therapy, the balance between addressing pathology and resilience, including home-working fathers and families from racially and culturally diverse families. There will be two brief presentations followed by group discussion.


In some instances homeworking has brought greater involvement of the father in the nuclear family and in parent infant psychotherapy, but in some families absence of or risk from the father or within the couple has been heightened. What experience have we gained in terms of understanding how we may better engage with these issues?  

Who is this event suitable for?

Practitioners working therapeutically online with infant and parents, with a psychoanalytic orientation.
