This book presents an interdisciplinary discussion between researchers and clinicians about trauma in the relationship between infants and their parents. It makes an innovative contribution to the field of infant mental health in bringing together previously separated paradigms of relational trauma from psychoanalysis, attachment and the neurosciences.
With contributions from a range of experts, areas of discussion include:
intergenerational transmission of relational trauma and earliest intervention
the nature of the traumatising encounter between parent and infant
the therapeutic possibilities of parent-infant psychotherapy in changing the trajectory of transmitted trauma
training and supporting professionals working with traumatised parents and infants.
Relational Trauma in InfancyΒ will be of particular interest to trainee and qualified child and adult psychotherapists, clinical psychologists, child and adult psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, health care professionals and social workers.

  1. George Halasz

    To find such a variety of diverse settings linked by the common thread of ‘relational trauma’ is a major feat.
    To allow readers to integrate cutting edge epigenetics, neuroscience, attachment theory and affect regulation
    in clinical settings provides plenty of creative sparks for any reader involved in the challenging fields of mental health.

    This is an excellent read. Tessa has brought together some excellent clinicians to write a book with good clinical examples to understand the theoretical underpinnings of attachment theory and early relational trauma. It is well woth a read for anyone working with infants, children and adults across the life span. The aspects of the chapter about fathers is very good and easy to understand.
