In this online workshop, Marguerite Reid will discuss the impact of perinatal loss both on the couple relationship and on the next generation, considering states of mind from a psychoanalytic perspective.

She will look at the effects of perinatal loss on the woman, the parental couple and also the children within the family, as well as any child or children born following a perinatal loss. She will also examine the way this can play out in subsequent generations, for example how a perinatal loss can impact on the emotional wellbeing of children and adolescents as well as contribute to difficulties that young adults may encounter in forming relationships and becoming parents.

The morning will include a mixture of presentation and group discussion, and relevant clinical material will be addressed. It will be of interest to clinicians working with both individuals and with couples, as well as those working with parenting issues. Perinatal loss can often remain 'a secret in the family', and can lead to complex emotional issues.
