"Mother-therapy": a method of the professor of psychiatry Boris Drapkin

For a sick baby its mom is a medicine stronger than any pills. She can help him cope with any, even the most serious illness.

One of the most famous children's psychiatrists and psychotherapists, Professor Boris Drapkin, who created a unique psychotherapeutic technique for treating childhood illnesses "Mother-therapy". His method has been developed and patented, approved by the All-Russian Society of Child Psychiatrists and by the Ministry of Health of Russian Federation.

What is the essence of this famous method?

There is a very close emotional connection between a young child and its mother, which develops biologically, at the stages of pregnancy and lactation.

Mother's voice becomes something like the inner voice of a small child, so it affects it much stronger than any psychotherapist. Especially if the mother's voice tells the child what it needs the most: maternal love and a sense of security (a kind of psychological placenta).

That is why almost any mother can become the healer for her child.

Drapkin himself speaks of a standards he developed: a basic program consists of four main blocks. First block could be called a "signal of love". This is how a son or daughter is tuned into a common psycho-emotional vibe with her mother. Then comes the "physical block": mother inspires the child with its ideal image, with no defects and illnesses. The next block is neuropsychological. And finally the "block of traditional medicine." An ordinary cold or something much more serious can be cured with this method. At the end comes the block we started with "signal of love": mother confirms her connection with her son or daughter, the naturalness and inviolability of their connection. The child can be calm: it is protected, his mother is with it, she loves it.

Phrases and expressions are carefully selected and are useful to anyone, including a healthy child. You must learn these phrases and speak to your baby every night, waiting for it to fall asleep.


Go to the baby's bed 20-30 minutes after it falls asleep, slightly touch its head or head and say (first mentally, and then out loud) phrase by phrase.

Try to do it slowly, with all the strength of your mother's conviction, as if sending the baby "waves of love".

Repeat the procedure every day. The program is designed for an average of 2 months, but improvements in the condition of the child will begin earlier. It is not recommended changing the wording or rearranging phrases, since this sequence has proved its effectiveness in helping many thousands of children. This is a general program that can be applied in a number of simple cases. An individual program is created and adjusted during treatment by a specialist. The most important thing is to always end with reassurances of boundless maternal love. The whole program is absolutely positive, the word "not" should not be used. You arouse in your baby the desire to be good, happy, healthy and reinforce the belief that this is possible.

Here is the text of the base blocks with a comment by Dr. Drapkin.

Family psychotherapy (a method of psychotherapy with maternal love)

Book of a famous psychotherapist Boris Drapkin is a lecture course developed for psychotherapists and psychologists, which sets out the theoretical and methodological foundations of a new area of psychotherapy: psychotherapy with maternal love. It also discusses the general problems of child psychotherapy, the problem of establishing a diagnosis and choosing the optimal therapy for a particular child.

The author of the book, perhaps for the first time showed not only the causes of developing mental disorders, but also gave real practical ways to prevent and treat them.
