Benedetta D’Intino Foundation International Conference
Depression and the depressive position in early childhood: Theoretical and clinical developments
The event is open to doctors, psychologists, psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, pediatricians and other childcare professionals.
The language of the conference will be Italian. Dr Mark Solms’ keynote presentation will be in English with Italian subtitles. Simultaneous translation will be provided during the speaker-audience debate.
Introduction: “Even in the earliest years of life, children can experience de-pression, namely, a collapse of their vital instincts. What role does the therapist play in sessions with young patients and their caregivers in transforming unprocessed anxieties and fears? The integration of sadness and vitality is a fundamental stage of psychic maturation, which also makes the often-explosive onset of puberty more manageable. The conference will explore these questions and how we can use the tools of our research, observation, listening and words to help and understand both children and their families”.
