~ Understanding and healing the roots of our relationships and bonding. ~

Friday evening lecture and a weekend workshop by Kati Orosz, Hungarian clinical psychologist and perinatal psychotherapist about the psychological foundations of our attachment, bonding and relationships, its roots in our earliest experiences.

We are going on a quest together searching for answers to the following questions that are of basic importance to all of us. We recommend the topics both to women and men, parents (to-be), mental health- and birth professionals.

  • How do we form our realationships?
  • To whom and how do we attach?
  • Where are the roots of our difficulties with relationships?
  • How can we heal and prevent early birth- and bonding trauma; as adults or parents, as therapists or birth professionals?
  • How can we feel more balance, joy and harmony in our relathionships?

WHEN?        13-15 March 2015
WHERE?      Amsterdam, Active Health Center: Jakob van Lennepkade 372

Register HERE or contact me at info@juliakaradi.com.

At the INTRODUCTORY TALK (Fri 20:00-22:00), followed by an open discusson, you will learn about how the basic pattern of our attachment and bonding is formed in the pre- and perinatal period of our life: in the womb, during, and after the intense process of birth.

At the WEEKEND WORKSHOP  (Sat & Sun 10:00-18:00) you will have various opportunities to recognise, explore and heal own early, perinatal and birth experiences with the help of effective therapeutic tools like imagination and bodywork. The group’s two days carry many situations that help participants digest and process whatever experience emerged in them. Throughout the process everybody has the space to discover and understand as much of their related memories and feelings as they are ready to experience. Participants receive guidance regarding the expected processes and we also recommend methods for further elaboration.
Working with and understanding how our basic attachment patterns are reflected in our everyday relationships, helps to resolve our difficulties and develop further. Going through this journey may lead us to a feeling of reconnection, and enable us to live our life more free and accomplished.

The unique methodology and approach of the group has been developped throughout the past 15 years by Kati Orosz and a dedicated team of professionals, based on therapeutic work with the birth experience of adult individuals. Since the beginnings, over 600 people participated in the workshops in Hungary, Germany, Russia and Holland, and experienced its deep longterm healing impact on the mental-, emotional- and even physical levels.

FRIDAY 20:00-22:00 Introductory talk: 25€
SATURDAY & SUNDAY 10:00-18:00 Weekend workshop:  255€

All of us need to develop a basic image of ourselves. Perinatal psychology points out a fundamental misunderstanding about human life:  as foetuses and newborns, our needs are not recognized and we are unaware of the deep impact that these early experiences later on have on our daily adult lives. The event will introduce these basic facts and correlations to professionals, although it might provide valuable information regarding one’s private life as well. Going through our lives, we pose several questions to ourselves, like “Why am I like this?” and “How could I change?” The issues discussed at our workshop reveal the path that moves the process of self-discovery forward and prepares us for changes.

The core idea of perinatal science is that our life forms one continuity from conception onwards and already our intrauterine experiences have a major effect on how we act, behave and react as embryos, foetuses, newborns, babies, children and adults.

Based on his pioneer contribution to perinatal science by compiling all available literature and research, Michel Odent claimed that primal health is of basic importance in human life. He uses this term to define how the experiences of the first year after conception include risk factors and preventive possibilities that unfold in the long-term development of the child. The significance of primal health cannot be emphasized enough. Our earliest life experiences create a basic imprinting that often influences our whole lives.
The research of foetal origin has found scientific proof of the major impact that foetal and perinatal experiences have on the development of subsequent health conditions. Severe diseases and intense anxiety may both originate here, while this period may also be related to the development of addictions and criminal tendency.
The concept is accompanied by the term competent foetus, which refers to acknowledging the autonomy of a person, his/her true needs and the significance of the optimal fulfilment of these needs starting from foetal life onwards.

Our workshop will introduce and explain these scientific facts and therapeutic experiences complemented by possibilities how helping professionals can improve primal health and support labouring mothers and babies getting born. We will also discuss the possibilities how an optimal development of the mother-baby relationship can be supported. Undisturbed birth, healthy bonding with the mother, respecting the baby’s autonomy and processing the birth experience are fundamental factors that improve our chances in life.

We recommend the event to everyone interested in learning more about the concepts of competent foetus, primal health and foetal origin. Having a psychological theme, our workshop might provide valuable information to both professional and student midwives, all birth professionals as well as coaches, counsellors and psychologists. As these experiences influence our whole life, familiarity with these questions may bring about a fundamental change of perspective in psychological work and birth support.
