SCHWOCHOW, Monique Souza et al. Initial complaints in the parent-infant psychotherapy process. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.2, pp. 403-430. ISSN 1983-3482.

The initial complaints in parent-infant psychotherapy can sometimes denounce the main signs of psychic suffering of infants, mothers and fathers. Given the importance of these issues raised by families with infants, the present study aimed to understand the complaints presented in the initial period of treatment in a parent-infant intervention center in a public university in the south of Brazil. Through a descriptive design, the initial complaints presented in the reports of 23 families that had been assisted in this service between the years of 2013 and 2017 were analyzed. The results found in this investigation pointed to the existence of three central axes related to the complaints: difficulties related to motherhood, infant's psychofunctional symptoms, and concerns regarding infant development. The initial complaints of infant's aggressiveness were the most frequent in this study, followed by difficulties in interaction and in the bond between mother and infant. With these findings, it is expected to improve the understanding of development of families with infants and to encourage health promotion of families with infants.
