Therapy with infants outlines a form of psychotherapy aimed at infants and young children who have experienced traumatic events before the age of three. Infant Therapy is a specific method inspired by the work of the French pediatrician and psychoanalyst Francoise Dolto and her student Caroline Eliacheff. The method can be applied with infants and children, as well as with adults.


Many children, young people and adults carry traumas from infancy, for example stemming from difficult deliveries, medical interventions, premature birth, or the separation of mother and child, perhaps in connection with adoption or illness. Trauma symptoms include sleep problems, feelings of abandonment, disrupted attachments, relationship difficulties, substance use disorders, eating disorders or general maladaptive behavior. In infant therapy, the trauma is put into words and the energy that was tied up in the trauma is released.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify infant trauma and its consequences

  2. Explore the use of Infant Therapy in addressing trauma in children

  3. Apply Infant Therapy to heal infant trauma in the adult


We’ve also asked Charlotte to address:

  • Why are Danes consistently called the Happiest People in the World?

  • What is the Danish view of children and child-rearing?

  • What is HYGGE and how can you get it?

This workshop is intended for Mental Health Professionals, but is also appropriate for Medical Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, Nannies, or anyone who works with and around children.
