At what point does the construction of the human psyche begin? What memory or footprint leaves us what we experience in our mothers uterus? How does childbirth affect psychological development? Is it possible to heal traumas of intrauterine life in adulthood?
Prenatal psychology has been trying to answer these exciting questions for more than a hundred years. In this course we will have with us Professor Olga Gouni, one of the most important European experts in this field, who will share her knowledge both about of the history of prenatal psychology as well as of the clinical applications in the perinatal field and in psychotherapy.
Olga Gouni holds a masterclass on 25th and 26th of April in Madrid, in our Prenatal Psychology course, also still available online.
