Michael: Psychotherapeutic Treatment in the Context of Residential Treatment

Shlomit Haber Mosheiov

This paper describes the five-year psychotherapy of a boy suffering from a very early developmental disorder. The treatment involved bringing the child back to the point of crisis in maternal caring. This type of regression is vital in treating certain severe disturbances, but it can also be dangerous; hence the importance of an appropriate environmental space.
