The Synergy of Concurrent Couple and Child Therapies Viewed through the Lens of Link and Field Theories

Caroline Sehon, M.D., FRCP(C)

This case discussion will explore the benefits of using a family treatment model in which a psychoanalytic couple therapy and an individual child therapy are conducted conjointly by the same clinician. This psychoanalyst will discuss the rationale for designing this treatment strategy for this particular family. This study will provide, at different phases of the treatment, samples of dream material, play narratives, and vignettes from the child therapy and the couple therapy sessions. Transference and countertransference elements will be discussed, with particular reference to exploring how the integration of these elements, in these separate but interrelated treatment contexts, can provide an enriched lens through which to consider treatment of the family as a whole. The case relates to link theory and analytic field concepts through an explication of the intergenerational and professional network implications of concurrent therapies.
