In this, his second Sutherland Trust lecture of 2015, Graham Shulman provides a further fascinating insight into the practice of parent-infant psychotherapy and its impact on young lives. Having highlighted in his first lecture the invisibility of infants and Infant Mental Health, and the need for specialist interventions for high-risk infants, Graham Shulman focuses in more detail on his experiences of clinical work with parents and infants. Case history material is used to illustrate how even the most seriously impaired or troubled parent-infant relationships can be repaired, and outcomes improved through parent-infant psychotherapy.
Graham Shulman works for NHS Lanarkshire as a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist. He trained at the Tavistock Clinic in London. He has been involved for many years as a tutor on the Scottish Child Psychotherapy training and has also taught Infant Observation. He is a former Editor of the Journal of Child Psychotherapy and was joint Editor and contributor to the book The Emotional Experience of Adoption: A Psychoanalytic Perspective, published by Routledge in 2008.
