Active Comparator: Child Health Centre care
TAU involved scheduled health visitor calls at the local Child Health Centre (CHC), with paediatric checkups at 2 and 6 months of age. The health visitor is encouraged to promote attachment and to detect postnatal depressions. Mothers may be offered parental groups, infant massage or guidance promoting interaction, as well as appointments with a paediatrician or a child psychiatric psychologist. Additional treatment was initiated in 1/3 of the cases. This was registered at the end-point interview.
Behavioral: Child Health Centre care
Nurse calls at Child Health Centres (CHC), with regular paediatric checkups. The nurse was encouraged to promote attachment and to detect postnatal depressions. Appointments with a psychiatrist or therapist or child psychiatric psychologist was initiated in 1/3 of the cases. This was registered at the end-point interview.

Experimental: Mother-Infant Psychoanalytic tmt
MIP (Norman, 2001; 2004) is a psychoanalytic method adapted to the requirements of the infant as analysand in the presence of his mother. The analyst strives to recruit the baby for an emotional interchange, though this does not imply any belief that the infant understands verbal communication. The analyst addresses the baby to help him liberate emotions consolidated in symptoms such as screaming, avoiding maternal eye contact, and breast refusal. The analyst takes great care in enrolling the participant mother. This is to enhance her understanding of the baby's predicament and the nature of their relation, as well as giving her all space needed to vent her own frustration, depression and anxiety.
Behavioral: Mother-Infant Psychoanalytic tmt
Psychoanalytic sessions with mother and infant, at a median of 23 sessions 2 times weekly.
Other Name: MIP
The 71 dyads remaining from the MIPPS-01 study will be interviewed when the children have reached 4½ years, in order to evaluate the long-term intervention effects of MIP treatments delivered by psychoanalysts at the Infant Reception Service of the Swedish Psychoanalytic Society and of the usual treatments of infants and children in Sweden implying contact with nurses at Child Health Centres.
