Through the Night describes pioneering work in the baby clinic of a General Practice by a child psychotherapist from the Tavistock Clinic. Sleep problems can tear a family apart. Since it was first published in 1989, Through the Night has been helping parents to understand their sleepless infants - and themselves. Dilys Daws listens to the 'cries' of the family as a whole. Her approach - based on meeting the parents and baby together a few times - is proving to be of great practical help to parents. Through the Night was the first book on the technique of parent-infant psychotherapy to be published in the UK.
