The Culture of Clear Differentiation Between Knowledge and Non-Knowledge in Prenatal Psychology

July 2012

In order to validate external perceptions there are clear criteria in the natural sciences as to what is known and what is not known. In psychology we are dealing with internal perceptions, where the boundary between knowledge and non-knowledge cannot be so clearly defined due to the subjectivity of the observer. However, during the past hundred years, a culture of validation of internal perceptions has been developed in psychoanalysis and other psychotherapies by means of controlled self experience and supervision.

Womb = Woman = World: Gender and Transcendence in Tibetan Tantric Buddhism

$10.00

Abstract: The cosmologies of many cultures use gender as symbolic for polar attributes of human consciousness. The author presents a developmental neurobiological theory to account for the non-arbitrary way in which this attribution comes about, and applies the theory to an explanation of the symbolic use of gender in Tibetan tantric Buddhism. He concludes by discussing the implications of the theory for understanding the effects of positive and negative pre- and perinatal experiences upon the development of gender identity.

Prenatal and Perinatal Psychotherapy with Adults: An Integrative Model for Empirical Testing

$10.00

Publication Date: 
June 2011

This article identifies an issue within the discipline of prenatal and perinatal (PPN) psychology, namely that the field currently consists of individual practitioners’ modalities without empirical validation around treatment efficacy. The goal undertaken was to integrate the PPN literature related to adult psychotherapy into a coherent and practical model to serve as a guide for students and professionals that could also be empirically tested.

Investing in Human Potential From the Beginning of Life: Key to Maximizing Human Capital

December 2008
Economic analysis of human capital?the abilities and skills a person brings to community and work force?suggests that investing in early childhood programs is much more cost-effective than dollars spent intervening later in life. Even with increasing knowledge of the importance of early intervention programs, there still appears to be a mental divide separating the prenatal and birth period and infancy. Programs that begin during infancy or later may not address the fundamental origins of the increasing issues we face regarding our children.

The Black Hole: Exploring the Schizoid Personality Disorder, Dysfunction and Deprivation with their Roots in the Pre and Perinatal Period

$10.00
Price: $10.00
Publication Date: 
December 2008
The relationship between traumatic events from conception to birth and the Schizoid Personality Disorder, Dysfunction and Deprivation is explored. From extensive experiential work with clients, based on the work of the British psychiatrist, Dr. Frank Lake, and her own personal experiences, the author discusses the very painful schizoid personality dysfunctions and deprivations relating to traumas of great severity in the first trimester of life. Loss of bonding and fear of intimacy are explored, along with dissociation and boundaries, seen as learned behaviour in the womb.

The Alchemical Dance of Mother and Infant: A Blueprint for Co-Creative Dyadic Unity During the Prenatal and Perinatal Period

$10.00
Price: $10.00
Publication Date: 
October 2007

This theoretical dissertation considered the biological and psychologicalimportance of the dance between mother and infant from conception through the bonding period. It proposed a unifying dance metaphor of pre- and perinatal motherinfant alchemical dance to provide a psychological term describing their first organizing co-creative dynamics. The process of alchemical dance is postulated to be Nature?s blueprint for the initial creational unfolding of human development.

Prenatal and Perinatal Memories in Preverbal Children: Clinical Observations Using Videotape Examination

$10.00
Price: $10.00
Publication Date: 
October 2007

This research study examined the hypothesis that preverbal children are capable of implicitly and explicitly registering their prenatal and perinatal experiences and of subsequently communicating these experiences through their behavior. It asked the question, Can trained observers accurately identify preverbal children?s prenatal and perinatal experiences based on the children?s behavior in a therapeutic setting? The study utilized mixed-method analysis, and accuracy was assessed according to the degree of correspondence between the observers?
