The Roominess of Language: Mothers’ Descriptions of Their Infants and a Discourse Analysis Approach to Reflective Function

Robin Balbernie

This is a short description of a piece of research that compared and contrasted the way in which different caregivers described their infants and the relationship between the pair of them.
