RODRIGUES, Luiza Guazzelli da Costa  e  SCHAEFER, Márcia Pinheiro. Repercussions of mismatches and family environment in the mother-baby relationship: experiencing the Bick observation method. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2019, vol.31, n.3, pp. 481-496. ISSN 0103-5665.

The observation of the mother-baby relationship allows the therapist in training to develop important skills for his practice. Developed by Esther Bick, the Bick method of infant observation covers the main concepts of psychoanalysis, such as the unconscious, transference, countertransference, and free-floating attention. The study aimed to understand mismatches between mother and baby and the importance of the familiar environment, from an experience report of an observation of a mother-baby relationship and Winnicott's theoretical formulations. The format of the activity was adapted from the Bick method of infant observation. Throughout the observations, it was possible to identify initial difficulties in the interaction due to mismatches in the mother-baby relationship. The family environment and, in particular, the maternal grandmother's help were important as sources of affection and empathy for the dyad, promoting a new possibility of interaction for the baby. It was concluded that the family environment was fundamental, both for the development of the infant and for a maternal care with more empathy.
