An Introduction to Integrative Baby Therapy (duration 3 hrs 10 mins)
A fabulous introduction to Our experiences in the womb, at birth and shortly after birth profoundly shape our sense of who we are and our perceptions of the world. This recording is intended for psychotherapists, body-workers, midwives, doulas, parents and anyone who is interested in how our earliest experiences shape us. The recording includes seminar style teaching with demonstration of the baby’s journey to birth and discussion of work with families and babies. Topics include: How the conventional cultural understanding of babies and prenates is at odds with their nature and needs. The four stages of birth of birth from a baby’s perspective (as opposed to the three stages of birth from the obstetrical perspective) and how each of these stages may impact us. The programme shows how each of the stages of birth may set up specific core beliefs and life statements.
