Psychodynamic Therapies with Infants and Parents: A Review of RCTs on Mother-Infant Psychoanalytic Treatment and other Techniques

Björn Salomonsson, M.D., Ph.D.

This article critically examines the existent evidence base for Psychodynamic Therapy with Infants and Parents (PTIP), specifically focusing on the available RCTs (Randomized Controlled Trials) in the literature. The author also discusses how these studies influenced the design of an RCT of a related novel treatment method, Mother-Infant Psychoanalytic treatment (MIP). He found that certain types of mothers and infants may be more likely to benefit from MIP. In addition to providing guidance on therapeutic techniques, this article also effectively outlines ways in which PTIP, as well as psychotherapy for emotional issues during pregnancy, can be better integrated into the comprehensive health care system. Local health care units comprised of a nurse group and one therapist may be a better way of handling mother-infant interactional difficulties than centralized, specialized perinatal psychiatry centers.
