The Parent-Child Relationship Competencies: How Three Infant-Parent Psychotherapists Find Paths into Diverse Infant-Family Landscapes
St. John, Maria Seymour
ZERO TO THREE, v36 n6 p37-44 Jul 2016
This article weaves the stories of three practitioner-family relationships and describes how the Parent-Child Relationship Competencies (PCRCs; St. John, 2010) function as a map for assessment and treatment planning. The PCRCs are a set of culturally variable yet universal bi-directional (parent-to-child and child-to-parent) relational capacities that emerge spontaneously under ordinary circumstances, but can be strained, impaired, or absent as a result of various difficulties. The PCRC framework helps practitioners join collaboratively with families to tap the power of the inherently healing and growth-promoting parent-child relationship.
