Rational

The experience of breastfeeding is one of the very first and instinctual forms of contact that the newborn experiences with the mother and with the world.

In addition to satisfying a primary need linked to nutrition, breastfeeding constitutes, due to its physiology made up of skin-to-skin contact and protective hormonal mechanisms, a very profound contribution to the creation of a psychological relationship between mother and child. For Winnicott, an English pediatrician and psychoanalyst, breastfeeding represents the first form of communication capable of influencing subsequent communicative and relational experiences: it is not simply a matter of offering milk, but of creating a primary bond. The same principle was confirmed by the research of the American psychologist Harlow as early as 1959, through the observation of baby monkeys who found themselves preferring synthetic fur mothers to iron dummies equipped with a feeding bottle. In this way, it was demonstrated that already in the first months of life, the attachment bond develops not only due to a desire for nutrition, but also due to a need for contact and care.

Breastfeeding is all of this: contact, communication, listening, nutrition, comfort, confirmation and relationship.

Our perinatal psychology conference intends to explore, through the most recent scientific evidence, the topic of breastfeeding and nutrition from a psychological and relational point of view, offering an opportunity for multidisciplinary reflection on a topic that is as current as it is debated.

Call for Abstract

We are a group of psychologists, doctors, obstetricians and psychotherapists who have worked in perinatal psychology for years. Our group is named “Area Perinatale SIPRe” and we are part of a psychoanalytic society who have organised many highly specialised formative experiences regarding perinatal psychology. Some of us work as researchers or clinicians in private practices and others in public hospitals all over Italy, for example in Bologna, Bergamo, Monza and Milano.
This group of professionals has thought, created and organised the sixth edition of the International Conference of Perinatal Psychology. Marcello Florita, who is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and author of a perinatal psychology manual, some essays and a novel, is the chief of this group.
This year, as every year, we are organising an event, open to many professionals, which has the purpose to spread a serious and scientific perinatal culture.
