Margaret Mahler's lifelong commitment to research in child development culminated in her formulation of The Separation-Individuation Process, opening up an avenue of understanding of the early life of the child not available to us previously.
The video depicts the process in great detail in three parts:
This video is especially designed for use in training institutions for advanced clinicians and for developmental researchers.
In the first of two 10-minute updates, Dr McDevitt uses research data, both from the original study and from the follow-up study of the same subjects, to show how, early in life, the infant may develop internal conflicts.
In the second update Dr Blum outlines the developmental path to object constancy and then explores Dr Mahler's extension of the concept of object constancy and its functional significance in development.
