WCAIMH Talk: November 23, 2017 – Film: “A Two Year Old Goes to Hospital”
SPEAKER: Dr. Nicole Sonya Vellet, Ph.D., R. Psych., Vellet & Associates Child Psychological Services
TOPIC: Dr. Vellet will screen the classic James Robertson Film “A Two Year Old Goes to Hospital” about the suffering of a little girl separated from her mother, and talk about its significance for infant mental health. The session will focus on role of images and video footage in the history of the field of attachment (e.g., video footage by Rene Spitz of children in orphanages and John Roberston’s film of a child separated from her parents when she was hospitalized) and the clinical power of video feedback in attachment-based interventions.
