Louis Fraiberg, who she met while studying at Wayne State University. She died four months later on December 19, at the age of Particularly, she wanted to look at the effects blindness had on ego development and organization of experience in infants. The infant, Toni, was considered normal blind, as defined by Fraiberg. Stranger anxiety had been thought to only be an effect of a visual distinction between a known face and an unknown face. This was also questioned when Toni would not smile in response to hearing a voice of anyone except her mother around the age of eight months old.

Louis Fraiberg, who she met while studying at Wayne State University. She died four months later on December 19, at the age of Particularly, she wanted to look at the effects blindness had on ego development and organization of experience in infants.

The infant, Toni, was considered normal blind, as defined by Fraiberg. Stranger anxiety had been thought to only be an effect of a visual distinction between a known face and an unknown face. This was also questioned when Toni would not smile in response to hearing a voice of anyone except her mother around the age of eight months old.

She noted that blind infants use their mouth as a way to perceive the world much longer than non-blind infants. Since blind infants lack visual perceptions, they rely on their mouth for perceiving the world well into their second year of life.

Mental health treatment for children[ edit ] Selma Fraiberg not only researched blindness in infants, but also was a part of developing new techniques for mental health treatment of young children. One technique she proposed was called "kitchen table therapy. They are brief crisis intervention, developmental guidance-support treatment, and infant-parent psychotherapy.

Brief crisis intervention was used when there was few, specific, situational events that resulted in a lack of helping the child develop. Developmental guidance-support treatment is used in situations where the baby may have a chronic illness or disorder and the parents are struggling to find a way to move beyond that problem.

This therapy technique is used when parents are still capable of being good parents, but simply need assistance in how to practice that.

Infant-parent psychotherapy is used when the parents have their own struggles from their past which prevent them from developing an attachment with their child. The main goal of this technique is to rid the parents of their problem so it does not transfer onto the child.

This approach for developing infant relationships with their parents until the age of two brought the treatment into the home and is still used today. Her practice was the start of infant mental health development and is still being used today, only with small adjustments and modifications to account for changing urban and rural lifestyles. However, they continue to be the building blocks of infant mental health today. In her paper "Ghosts in the Nursery," Fraiberg said problems in infant development and attachment stem from the ghosts of their parents.

The unremembered ghosts prevent parents from fully developing a deep attachment with their child that is important to their development. The function is helping the subject leave their ghosts behind and continue moving forward with their life.
