Over the course of the last fifty years, research has shown that
the ability of the foetus to feel, experience and perceive is much
greater than had previously been supposed, yet debate continues
concerning sensations of fear, aggression and relating the 'self'
to the environment of the womb. Using theoretical and clinical
material, Philippe Ploye summarizes previous work on the
significance of prenatal behaviour in psychotherapy and expands on
this body of work to provide an informative and constructive
account of the ways in which life before birth can both foreshadow
problems experienced in postnatal life and can mirror the close,
dependent nature of the relationship between patient and analyst
established in a psychotherapeutic context. Ploye's text reveals a
continuity of experience from prenatal stages through to adulthood
and will appeal to all psychotherapists interested in the
development of human behaviour from conception onwards, and the
implications of this for the concept of the self.
