  • Marie Chevret

Abstract

The presence at the Lyon CECOS of a psychology team of three members, 2 psychologists(a woman and a man) and a woman physician, allows psychological assistance to be offered to couples having problems at any time during the course of their quest for artificial insemination with donor semen(AID) or with husband’s semen(AIH). Between January and September 1978, 24 couples were seen by the psychology team. Described herein is the type of assistance given the therapeutic effects obtained and the results one can hope for in brief therapeutic encounters.
