Intergenerational Transmission of Trauma through Infant-Parent Interaction: Perspectives from Early Development Research and “Two-Person” Psychoanalysis

This presentation shows how a detailed analysis of the fine details of infant-parent interaction can illuminate the intergenerational transmission of trauma.  A video vignette of the interaction of  a 3 day old baby with his father , who was himself abused by his own father, will be illuminate moment-to-moment, non-verbal interaction processes through which the father imposes his agonizing internal world on his helpless son.  In doing so, the concept of projective identification will be updated to yield a strong psychoanalytic model of psychic life oriented in a theory of internal two-person structures.  Other video vignettes will be shown if time permits.
