Psychologist, Engineer, CNRS
Trained in both moral philosophy (work on the way in which, in the Renaissance, political and moral philosophy was impregnated by medical discourse) and clinical psychology – prevention of early relationship disorders – Lynda Lotte is currently conducting research mainly related to the field of perinatal psychopathology.
After work on mental disability and "protected adults" with the family organization UNAF in 2005, she took part in the ANR-Cermes3 project on the stakes involved in prenatal diagnosis in disability prevention (2007). Since 2010, she has been examining the effects of high-risk pregnancy (prematurity) on early parent-child bonding for the Neoris project on dealing with risk in neonatology, "Prise en charge du risque en néonatologie" with MSH-Lorraine and the regional maternity in the city of Nancy as institutional partners.
Her Psychology PhD dissertation (Paris VII University) in progress, "Care of maternal mental vulnerabilities during the perinatal period and preventative strategies around working in networks," deals with the care of women with psychopathological disorders during the perinatal period, with a recommended therapeutic conduct and care arrangements set up for this period.
Lynda Lotte is a member of the editorial board of the journal Recherches Familiales (UNAF) and of the French branch of the World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH).
She has been a lecturer for several years at the Psychoanalytical Studies department of Paris Diderot University.
