Carrying Forward the Foundational Work of Ray Castellino with midwife Mary Jackson and Tara Blasco, PhD

Ray Castellino made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of prenatal and perinatal psychology.  He passed away in December of 2020 after actively teaching his work around the world for 50 years.  In this five-week series you will have the opportunity to hear lectures not previously available to the general public. His teaching team of Tara Blasco and Mary Jackson will host this series to share this important work.

He created a unique framework for practitioners to support the health of all families and relationships.  In this program you will be guided each week in practices that were created by Ray along with an opportunity to participate in live questions and answers.
