It’s day 2 of Celebrate Babies week! Today we invite you to celebrate babies, young children, and their families by engaging in thoughtful conversation with your coworkers, association members, and/or colleagues about ghosts and angels in the nursery. We welcome you to read, “Ghosts in the Nursery: A Psychoanalytic Approach to the Problems of Impaired Infant- Mother Relationships” (Fraiberg, Adelson & Shapiro, 1975) and consider the following questions:
- How can unresolved losses, traumas, relationships and experiences from the past haunt the present?
- How can unresolved losses, trauma, relationships and experiences play out in parent-child relationships? Give examples of times you have seen this occur.
