Healing the neglects and traumas of childhood requires a psychotherapist who is attuned to each client’s levels of emotional and cognitive development. To achieve this form of healing, psychotherapists and counselors need to be able to apply Child Development concepts and research findings in their therapeutic practice.

This knowledge is as well very helpful for professionals in other fields, where the deeper understanding of the personality of the client is important. – More detailed information next page.

 

APPLYING CHILD DEVELOPMENT THEORY AND RESEARCH IN PSYCHOTHERAPY AND OTHER FIELDS WITH ADULT CLIENTS AS WELL AS IN THE FIELDS OF COUNSELING, EDUCATION AND ORGANIZATION

This knowledge is as well very helpful for professionals in other fields, where the deeper understanding of the personality of the client is important. – More detailed information next page.

Um Vernachlässigung und Traumata aus der Kindheit zu heilen, braucht es Psychotherapeut*innen, die sich auf den jeweiligen emotionalen und kognitiven Entwicklungsstand der Klient*innen einstimmen. Um diese Form der Heilung zu erreichen, müssen Psychotherapeut*innen und Berater*innen in der Lage sein, Konzepte über Kindheitsentwicklung und die entsprechenden Forschungsergebnisse umzusetzen. – Darum geht es in diesem Workshop, siehe umseitig.

Dieses Wissen ist ebenfalls sehr hilfreich für Fachleute in anderen Bereichen, wo das tiefergehende Verständnis für die Persönlichkeit ihrer Klient*innen wichtig ist. 

This Workshop is conducted in English,

Important subjects will be:
• Early childhood memory that is embodied in physiological sensations, entrenched in affect, or unconsciously enacted in relationships. Such memories are not available to conscious thought because they are pre-linguistic, pre-symbolic, procedural, and implicit. However, these neurological imprints give rise to unconscious relational patterns that effect our clients in their adult lives.
• Physiological, emotional and behavioral signs of infant and parent relational disruptions are evident from the first few months of a child’s life and throughout adolescence. We may see subtle versions of these same self-stabilizing dynamics in adult clients when they tighten their bodies, agitate, avoid eye contact, or deflect from their feelings. Such behaviors may signal unresolved relational disruptions in early childhood that continue to create disruptions and conflicts later in adulthood.
• Generating methods that are attuned to an infant’s, young child’s, or school-age child’s particular rhythm, their affect and cognitive level of functioning, and the unique relational-needs at the level of development where an adult client may be fixated. We need to be therapeutically responsive to the withdrawn and silent client, the client who is either hypo- or hyperactive, as well as the client who is resistive or belligerent. Each of these behavioral manifestations may reflect the neglects and traumas that leave a person stuck at an earlier level of development.

This 4-day workshop in Waldkirch, Germany (near Freiburg) will focus on various methods of psychotherapy that are influenced by the theories and research in Child Development. We will explore various child development hypotheses and concepts that are based on the writings of John Bowlby, Eric Erickson, Selma Fraiberg, Jean Piaget, and Donald Winnicott as well as a number of current child development researchers.
