WS 19: Birth Trauma: Causes, Effects, Methods to Heal (2 x 3h)

A workshop for clinicians to understand the risk factors and causes associated with trauma during the perinatal period which can affect the mothers and fathers perception of the baby, their own self-concept, and their relationship. A traumatic birth can have both immediate and long-range effects on the infant that may underlie in the adult some lifelong psychological reactions, behaviors, and a negative self-perception. The workshop will identify the short and long term psychological and somatic manifestations of birth trauma as well as teach psychotherapeutic methods to resolve and heal these traumatic events.
