Marigemma Rocca will present examples of three different cases involving simple trauma, complex trauma and parent-child work.

This seminar looks at the psychoanalytic psychotherapy model and both the advantages and challenges it poses in this current climate.

The Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP) in the UK has published a review of the evidence of the effectiveness of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Marigemma Rocco will present examples of 3 different cases involving simple trauma, complex trauma, and parent-child work.

We know that psychoanalytic psychotherapy can bring about change. This seminar will provide the opportunity to explore how change happens in different clinical settings using a psychoanalytic psychotherapy frame. Time will be given to discussing the issues raised with specific regard to the situation in Ireland. Therapists are invited to think about their own clinical work and bring examples, if they wish, for discussion.
