    The Usage of Psychoanalytic Concepts to Inform Direct Intervention with an Avoidant Infant and her Parents

    Wednesday, February 1, 2017
    8:00 PM

    Presenter: Christine Anzieu, M.D., Ph.D.

    How can some classical Freudian concepts such as defense, transference, infantile sexuality, the role of body ego and super ego in the first year of life be applied to help the analyst working with parent-infant dyads?

    The case of a newborn that could not look at her mother, who didn’t feel empathy towards this child conceived from an egg donor, was understood using Winnicott’s notion of early superego and the lack of libidinal pleasure. The notion of defenses towards primitive anxiety and the role of the unconscious maternal functioning were helpful in helping the baby as well as the parents to regulate their interactions.
