"Innovations in Parent-Infant Psychotherapy" has emerged from the authors' and contributors' excitement about the proliferation of parent-infant psychotherapy work around the world. This model of parent-infant work has increasingly been taking place in community settings, adapting to the needs of emotionally deprived people such as refugees and ethnically diverse groups. Skilled workers from a variety of disciplines have benefited from psychodynamic thinking and supervision without necessarily being formally trained psychoanalytically. "Innovations in Parent-Infant Psychotherapy" is referring here to talented clinicians - such as speech and language therapists, health visitors, specialist nurses, child psychiatrists and paediatricians, family therapists, and psychologists, etc - not just child and adult psychotherapists and psychoanalysts. This book coincides with a global consciousness about the necessity to take care of the early years in order to create good outcomes for all young children, to reduce inequalities, and provide more cohesive and accessible early childhood services.
