Perinatal assessment of infant, parents, and parent-infant relationship: prematurity as an example

, : Perinatal assessment of infant, parents, and parent-infant relationship: prematurity as an example. Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America 18(3): 545-557

This article reviews the stresses for parents, infants, and other caregivers during the period surrounding the birth of the premature infant. Principles of assessment of infant discomfort, parental stress, the parent-infant relationship, and the match of the medical caregiving environment to the individual infant's needs are discussed. Relevant tools to aide in these aspects of assessment are reviewed. The role of early assessment as preventive intervention and the indication for subsequent intervention in complicated cases of premature infants and their parents are further discussed. The article offers detailed clinical examples to illustrate these and other points throughout.
