This experiential seminar offers an introduction to parent-infant observation through the use of artwork and videos. As a unique opportunity to see the relational capacities of infants and their caregivers, the close observation of a parent and baby can inform psychoanalytic training and help deepen analysts’ treatment work. Many clinical innovations of recent decades have been enhanced by infant observation, including understandings of the intergenerational transmission of trauma and appreciation of the infant in the adult or child patient.

Participants will learn about primitive mental states, the development of the mind and relationship, and nuances of preverbal communication. The observer’s role in containment and affect regulation will be considered as it applies to the analytic situation. The intensity and intimacy of transference and countertransference phenomena will be explored. We will engage these topics through the observation material; no readings are assigned.

Dorinda Welle, PhD, is an anthropologist and researcher teaching parent-infant observation and infant/toddler courses in online psychodynamic and psychoanalytic training programs in the United States and China.

Learning Objectives:
1. Identify nonverbal behavior and communication between mother-infant pairs.
2. Write preliminary observation notes after viewing parent-child interactions.
3. Describe the infant’s capacities for relating at birth.
4. Describe how the intergenerational transmission of trauma may occur in the parent-infant interactions.
5. Describe two aspects of the observer’s role in parent-infant observation.
6. Specify three examples of co-regulation between the parent and infant.
7. Formulate questions relating to parent-infant interactions observed in video clips.
8. Discuss possible applications of parent-infant observation in interventional approaches.
9. Describe how psychoanalytic concepts and transference/counter-transference understanding can influence what observers see or do not see.
