Parent/Infant Observation Course



Aims of the Course

mum and babyThe aim of the Course is to develop an understanding of human development and interaction through observing an infant in the setting of their home. The student visits the child in the family home for an hour each week from birth for one year.


The theoretical focus of the Course is psychoanalytic and the theoretical knowledge is drawn from the main psychoanalytic schools.


In addition to the weekly one hour Observation, the Course includes a 90 minute weekly seminar which includes discussion through case presentation, videos and papers.


The first term will consist of preparation for an infant observation. All students are expected to commence an actual infant observation by the beginning of the second term.
