Attachment crises after birth are characterised by high stress levels, increased bodily tension and feelings of alienation and insecurity in both parents and child. In this presentation the psychologist and parent-infant therapist, Thomas Harms, will show how the use of simple breathing, touching and awareness exercises helps parents and their children overcome trauma based nursing and childbirth crises, which tend towards a vicious circle weakening all concerned.  He shows how they can find their way back to a state of openness and willingness for attachment. Video examples demonstrate how, by re-establishing a mindful and accepting relationship to their own bodily selves, parents can inaugurate a process of “contagious health” and develop spontaneous access to the bodily and expressive language of their children.
