The mother child relationship as trauma, trigger and treatment. Working with intergenerational relational trauma, neglect and abuse: theory and ideas for practice

Dr Jackie Amos

Treatment options are limited for families where the child 3 -12 years has severe and intractable disturbances of emotionand behavior, where there is suspected or confirmed maltreatment by the mother and where the mother has her own history of childhood neglect and abuse. This presentation proposes a model for understanding maltreatment in these mother-child dyads, drawing upon the developmental psychopathology, behavior and trauma literatures. At the core of this model is the hypothesis that a mother's maltreating behavior arises from unconscious attempts to avoid the re-emergence of an attachment related dissociative part of the personality which contains the distress arising from her own early experiences of attachment relationships.
