Advances in the study of human development reveal that prenatal and perinatal experiences form the core foundation of life patterns. This workshop will help broaden the understanding of how these early experiences impact later development and will introduce ways to mitigate and heal potential stress and trauma that occur during this primary period. Professionals will learn how to apply these concepts to their own personal experiences and will learn ways to incorporate this perspective into assessments and interventions with children and adults.  

Program Goal

The goal of this course is for participants to broaden their understanding of the impact of prenatal and perinatal experiences on later development and how these experiences are processed and stored so to improve efficacy of therapeutic supports and interventions.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Define implicit memory, explicit memory, and imprints, and which part of the brain processes and stores each.  
  • Define 5 principles of repair applicable to pre- and perinatal trauma.
  • Name three commonly held misbeliefs about prenates and babies.
