The influence of parent-infant interaction on social and affective child development has been the object of a significant number of studies in the past three decades. This paper focuses on the evolution of the studies in the parent-infant interaction's domain. This evolution is examined from a theoretical and methodological point of view, particularly in the clinical field. Some research themes that seem to be promising in this domain are also highlighted.
