Object Relations Child Therapy - 2 CPD Hours

plus P&P (if applicable)

Watch renowned Object Relations psychotherapist David Scharff in an actual counselling session with an 11-year old boy who is grieving the death of his grandmother.

In David Scharff’s Object Relations child therapy approach, the parent-child relationship is the central concern, with particular attention paid to the representation of that relationship in the child’s mind. In this video, Scharff first consults with Mom to gather vital background information. Then using talk and art therapy techniques, Scharff demonstrates how to reach the internal world of a boy who is grieving his grandmother’s death, gets picked on by his dad and is struggling with separation anxiety. Jon Carlson and Don Keat introduce Dr. Scharff, and facilitate an in-depth discussion of the further impact and uses of this approach.

From watching this video, you will:

  • Develop an understanding of the key concepts of Object Relations child therapy, including the importance of being a receptive container for the child’s powerful feelings.
  • Gain insight into Dr. Scharff’s therapy style and how he works with each child at their particular developmental capacity to create a psychological holding environment.
  • Learn how to apply Dr. Scharff’s talk and play therapy techniques to your own therapeutic work with children.
