The Role of Interpretation in Child Analysis,

Illustrated with the Case of a Four-Year-old Manic Girl

Presenter: Christine Anzieu-Premmereur, MD, PhD

Discussant: Kirsten Dahl, PhD

Interpretation in child psychoanalysis raises the problems of the countertransference, in the endless movements between the emotions and the work of thought. During infancy, emotional experiences are shared with the parents who gave meaning with their actions and words. The failure in this process leads to issues in the structuring contribution of the interpretation in symbolic terms in the treatment of a child. The analyst will have to adjust the technique by accepting a regression to the infant’s emotions and to the young child’s semiotic language. The role of interpretation changes from its role relating to transformation into a tool for constructing a more effective mental container. The case of a disorganized anorectic young girl will illustrate the development of different levels of interpretations.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe and critically evaluate theories about interpretation in child treatment.
  2. Explain the multilayered dynamics present in the interactions between a child and its analyst.
  3. Select the techniques for deepening the analytic process with children.
