Learn and remember how little ones perceive through experiential exercises. You will explore your own developmental history and early imprints. Discover how to attune to babies and clients’ early life material to enhance therapeutic outcomes for adults and enhance bonding and attachment during the pre and perinatal period.
For: Those who have completed a full training in Pre and Perinatal Therapy/Psychology and would like to further embody the skills and theory of being with clients working with their own pre-verbal imprints. Four days in length.
To express interest and for further details: Contact Charisse, see Contact page.
This training prepares participants to support clients with pre-verbal imprinting. We will teach how to support clients in developing the skills to self regulate and differentiate past trauma from present-time triggers. In this way, implicit memories hidden in the right brain become explicit helping to transform chronic patterns into healthier behaviours.
Learning is facilitated through experiential exercises which allows theory to be integrated. The group setting is designed to produce a safe and often fun space.
Lectures provide a sound framework of understanding, and footage of family sessions show examples of how to apply the material in your practice.
Understanding how babies feel and remember from conception onwards is illuminating; learning how to recognize this in children and adults is life enhancing. Charisse and Mary are experts in this field and teach from their wealth of experience and passion.
