Prenatal Survival Imprints: Understanding & Integrating the Effects of Early Life Threat
The intricate psychodynamics of overwhelming, life threatening prenatal trauma, which is more common than many think, with its inherent survival mechanisms and double binds, core issues, beliefs and perceptions will be explored. A case of prenatal life threat will be presented to illustrate the psychodynamics of this early trauma. Prenatal shock and survival imprints profoundly influence every aspect of life, often dominating and constricting our life force throughout childhood and adulthood if left untended.
