A documentary film by: Karen Dougherty Mother-Infant Communication: The Research of Dr. Beatrice Beebe


Dr. Beatrice Beebe at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University, has been conducting frame-by-frame video microanalysis of mother-infant communication for over 40 years. From just two-and-a-half minutes of second-by-second analysis of face-to-face play at four months, Dr. Beebe can predict attachment style at one year. Focusing on looking and looking away and using actual lab footage and interviews with Dr. Beebe and her colleagues, this 34-minute documentary takes us into the work and world of Dr. Beatrice Beebe. The film is available through Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing (PEPWEB)
