This Module delineates the dynamics of couples interaction and suggests effective tools for working with these issues.I am very excited about this module, as couple relationship and parenting is where, as adults, our own early attachment and adverse experiences most REVEAL themselves. It can also be a place where resiliency shines.
In this module, we will explore ancestral influences on individuation/connection, and merging dynamics (in pre and perinatal work we call this 'twin dynamics')...An extensive home project will be suggested for everyone. Treatment models will be explored.
As the twin and multiple birth rate is continuing to increase this module also looks at twin pregnancy, the impact of losing a twin during pregnancy, and growing up as a twin. I will delineate the difference between identical and fraternal twins, and because more twins mean more breech positions for babies about to be born we will also look briefly at breech birth.
This module marks a big transition in this video series. In Module One I included the Maternal Matrix, which outlines what we optimally would have received in an embodied way by the time we were three years old...Chemical and surgical interventions, or the presence of them in our early life strongly and effectively take us out of our bodies and beings. We will delve into the signature patterns of these interventions (in module 4) in our autonomic nervous systems.
Like conception and implantation, birth requires an intention to be born, and preparation – the baby actually initiates labour, and must move into an optimal position if a relativity easy birth is to occur. The action of the actual birth stages is dynamic, and the baby is actively involved in that movement.
This module starts with an exploration of our inner and outer resources. When we begin to reveal to ourselves all that babies and young children need and deserve to optimally grow and be themselves, it may bring up some of the experiences of what we didn’t get and wanted.
Resources and regulation is important so we are not overwhelmed. Just acknowledging what actually happened to us helps us to consciously repattern and make different choices….as we are soooooo much more than what happened to us.
