Abstract

Introduction: Health conditions at birth and early relationships are important for psycho-emotional development (Stern, 2004). Premature birth is a diffuse problem, relevant in terms of medical and psycho-emotional complications. These babies' parents may have difficulties in caring relationships (Landsem, 2014). Aims of the study: - Compare triadic interactions in a group of preterm infants (Gpi) participating to neurorehabilitation program, with those in a group of born at term infant (Gti) - Compare Gpi triadic interactions after six months of therapy, with those of Gti - Compare, in Gpi, parental stress, self-perception of parenting skills, child temperament at the beginning of neurorehabilitation program and after six months - Investigate, in Gpi, the link among self-perception of parenting skills, child temperament, parental stress and triadic relationships The total sample consists of 12 families Material and methods - Italian Questionnaire of Temperament (Axia 2002) - Family Empowerment Scale (Koren, De Chillo e Friesen, 1992) - Parent Stress Index- Short Form (Abidin, 2008) - Lausanne Trilogue Play (LTP, Fivaz-Depeursinge e Corboz-Warnery, 1999)Ltp was administered to both groups, other tests were administered to Gpi. Results: Ltp showed better interactions in Gti, even if, less differences were registered between the two groups (13 variables with better scores vs 11 variables) six months later, highling a good triadic interaction's evolution in Gpi. Amongs preterms' families, triadic interactions resulted to be influenced by parenatal stress, babies' temperament and parental skills. Conclusions: Ltp seems to be important to investigate the characteristics of early interactions, especially in those families need to be supported in delicate periods of life (such Gpi could be).
