‘Infant Mental Health’

Balbernie clinical updates: Issue 1

Hi everybody

And as happy a new year as is feasible to you all too. It has to get better one day!

As you will have seen AiMH UK is in the process of transforming its website; which reminded me that ‘Infant Mental Health’ is a term that was coined by Selma Fraiberg and her team just about 50 years ago. That in turn led to thoughts of infant-parent psychotherapy. I have a long overview of this which will go on the website soon for members to use. Fraiberg and her team’s seminal paper on ‘Ghosts in the nursery’  is always worth re-reading.
