MODULE SIX: COUPLES, FROM AN ATTACHMENT PERSPECTIVE
We are just beginning to understand the dynamics of long term couple relationships. The last decade has given us new knowledge about the psychobiological processes and the reciprocity of early developmental relational experiences and our developing brain. Attachment theory and the neuroscience of emotional connection is shedding new light in this mysterious arena. This Module delineates the dynamics of couples interaction and suggests effective tools for working with these issues.
MODULE SEVEN: INFANTS AND THEIR FAMILIES
We review epigenetics, and the effects of toxic stress on the prenate and infant in terms of brain and attachment development. Birth practices and their impacts, along with tools for supporting families in resolution are included. This is a really “RICH, BIG” module.
MODULE EIGHT: PRESCHOOLERS AND THEIR FAMILIES
The emphasis in this module is on family dynamics, and the development of attachment based emotional/social/cognitive health in the preschool years. Many videos clips of actual sessions are included, along with home exercises to develop skills with these families.

This module focuses on healing from pregnancy loss, be that miscarriage, stillborn or abortion.

The different forms of ART, and their outcomes for babies and parents are delineated, with support tools.
MODULE TEN: PREMATURITY
Prematurity around the world has increased dramatically in the last 15 years, and has a huge negative impact on the baby’s outcomes for the future.

Video clips bring this home to our hearts.
