In both Senegal and Africa, training in child psychotherapy is almost non-existent. The only training available is limited to a classical education on anatomo-physiological bases of the brain function, nosology and psychiatric pharmacology. The introduction of training in Senegal on how to observe infants by Esther Bick has, since 2009, opened another pathway for the training of specialists in the mental health of children. For the author, Observation of Infants offers a new opportunity for the training of specialists in mental health for children in Senegal and Africa.
