- When and why did you decide to work with Lausanne trilogue play (LTP) and Pique-nique game (JPN)?

The Lausanne Trilogue Play has been created by Elisabeth Fivaz and Antoinette Corboz-Warnery, in Lausanne during the 80s. The fourth part has been added when I arrived (in 1994)  at the Family Center for Family Study they were directing. And we created the JPN (PicNic Game) around 2002.


- How can these techniques (LTP and JPN) help us on our practice as clinicians?

They are very useful situations to observe and analyse family interactions, and in particular family alliance and coparenting. They may help to understand family functioning, to see resources and difficulties. They can also be used for video feedback, to show to the family members their resources and what they could improve.


- Where and how can the students learn more about these techniques? Are there any training programs?

You can find all the information in this informative flyer.


- What motivated you to give a lecture on this master? What are your expectations around the lecture?

To invite future clinician to promote family interaction, to integrate fathers, to support coparenting and to go beyond mother-baby dyad.


Can you give any general advice or recommendation to the students of the master?

Be curious, open your eyes, your mind and your heart!
