Child Analytic Technique: The Relationship with the Analyst
The developmental capacities of prelatency children require techniques appropriate to their cognitive and psychological capabilities. How does analytic treatment enable the child to move from the preoedipal to the oedipal stage and, in some cases, into latency? In the next two seminars we will pay close attention to and discuss how psychoanalytic treatment leads to change in the child patient. We will examine the object-relational and non-verbal aspects of the analytic dyad in the light of current two-person psychoanalytic thought. First, we will look at the therapeutic object relationship: the child’s use of the analyst not only as a transference object but as a developmental object.
