Prenatal & Perinatal Psychology and Healing Touch: Transforming Care in the NICU
This one-hour presentation will highlight how Healing Touch and pre and perinatal psychology can be integrated into the area of Neonatal Intensive Care, where there is much need for support because of the nature of crisis and complication. Healing Touch for Babies, an energy modality that accelerates the healing process and can enhance connectivity between parent and child, will be described. I will then discuss how these two ingredients transform the NICU experience of parent and child. The parents feel more support, and the wisdom creates peace and empowerment that, thereby, creates a more solid environment for the baby.
