Session 1: Weaving CranioSacral Therapy and Birth Psychology for Conception, Pregnancy, and Birth with Carol McLellan, CMT, CST-D, CD

September 25, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM


APPPAH and Upledger Institute International are partnering to offer this two-day workshop on how CranioSacral Therapy and Birth Psychology integrate.

This is the first day of a 2-day workshop for CranioSacral therapists seeking to learn more, including how to integrate Birth Psychology concepts into their practice and is also for birth practitioners and healthcare professionals looking to understand the benefits of CranioSacral Therapy for mothers and babies.

Live workshop takes place on Sat, Sept 25th and Sunday, Sept 26th from 12:00pm- 3:00pm each day (check your timezone here)

Note: “CranioSacral Therapy” is a brand name referring to a specific body of knowledge, while CranioSacral “therapists” is describing a type of professional and therefore “therapists” does not need to be capitalized (per UII).  We are using “Birth Psychology” in the same way “CranioSacral Therapy” is used to refer to a specific body of knowledge, so I think it warrants capitalization too. We would not capitalize “birth psychologists” as it is descriptive term for a type of professional. 

During this program you will:

  • Gain a clear understanding of how CranioSacral Therapy integrates the concepts of Birth Psychology.
  • Recognize how our consciousness, thoughts and emotions effect our physical structure.
  • Explore the concepts and applications of pre and perinatal psychology.
  • Discover how treating utilizing both modalities—CST and Birth Psychology—has been shown to release ancestral patterns and negative imprinting, as well as facilitate a deeper connection between the mother and child in utero.
