The Primary Triangle: A Developmental Systems View of Mothers, Fathers, and Infants

Front Cover
In the spirit of Daniel Sterns landmark Interpersonal World of the Infant, this is the first book to extend the model of mother-infant dialogue to the larger family system.. Integrating developmental and systems theories, the authors propose an original scenario by which to understand and treat the family unit. Under study here is the primary triangle of mother-father-infant. The authors provide a complex research paradigm for examining the interactional triangles formed in the family during the early years.
