Experiencing the New Art and Essential Practices of Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Medicine
Over the past two decades scientific discoveries are creating dramatic paradigm shifts in what we know about the experience of babies, what it takes to raise healthy, resilient children and our capacity for healing and change throughout the lifespan. These new perspectives on pre- and perinatal psychology are a convergence of the diverse disciplines of epigenetics, affective neuroscience, attachment theory, prevention and healing of trauma and even economics. Given this groundbreaking research we need to take a fresh look at the way we practice our art and craft. Join Marti Glenn, pre- and perinatal psychology pioneer, for this inspiring one-day workshop and experience practical applications of these latest findings. Learning from the inside out, you will gain specific, practical tools for assisting pregnant couples, birthing families, children and adults. Marti will lead us to our own creative edges with music, humor, story and seeds of knowing that open us to new vistas.
You’ll experience and be able to illustrate:
• PPP as art and science
• Self and relationship as primary healing tool
• “Window of Tolerance”, rigidity and chaos, self-regulation, and resiliency
• Seven somatic markers of attachment
• Five strategies of attachment-focused therapy
You’ll leave with a toolkit of powerful resources to enhance your life and practice.
