The Baby, the Doctor and the Psychoanalyst

Psychoanalysis in the world of the premature new-born.

This promises to be a truly compelling event. It’s open to anyone who is interested in the life of the hospitalised new-born and will be especially of interest to anyone who is part of the community surrounding him, the family and all of the medical and support staff.  The Association for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Ireland has organised this one-day clinical seminar on psychoanalysis in the neonatal unit. APPI will be hosts to Catherine and Alain Vanier.

Catherine is a psychoanalyst in Paris. She works in the child psychiatric unit at the Delafontaine Hospital in Saint-Denis and is a researcher at the Centre for Psychoanalysis, Medicine and Society at the University of Paris VII. She is a member of l’espace analytique and the author of numerous books and publications.

Alain is a psychoanalyst in Paris, a member of l’espace analytique, a psychiatrist, and professor of psychopathology at University of Paris VII-Diderot.  He is the director of the Centre for Research in Psychoanalysis, Medicine and Society (CRPMS).  He is a lecturer at the Ècole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris (ENSBA) and the author of books and articles on psychoanalysis.

In the morning Catherine will be presenting a clinical seminar on her work at the neonatal resuscitation unit at Delafontaine Hospital in Saint-Denis, Paris and she’ll be showing excerpts from the remarkable film made about her work there. In the afternoon Alain will be commenting on the work and will be providing more theoretical frameworks to approaching work with this newly born subject.
