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.


The Covid situation has, in many cases, changed fathers’ involvement in their nuclear families and in parent infant psychotherapy. In some instances, home-working or not working has brought greater involvement of the father in the nuclear family but in some families the absence of, or risk from, the father has been heightened. What has experience informed us in terms of better engaging with the father, mother and baby around such issues
