The latest developments in science, medicine and psychology suggest that the most critical formative period for human development is between pre-conception and baby’s first postnatal year. This is the most “sensitive and critical period” in the establishment of life patterns in all domains: physical, mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual. For over three decades, prenatal and perinatal psychology has been studying our earliest development from pre-conception through birth and bonding. The field’s research and clinical experience have established the fact that our earliest experiences form the foundation of our sense of self, our capacity to relate to others and our resiliency in life. This work has also effectively mapped key nodal points of development that need to be met in order to promote healthy life patterns. This presentation will outline 12 principles from this research and clinical practice that will help guide practitioners in understanding and applying the fundamentals in their work.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: The 12 Guiding Principles for nurturing human potential, gleaned from decades of research and practice in the field of prenatal and perinatal psychology
Objective 2: What makes this period of development -- preconception through the post-natal period – the most sensitive and critical period of development and how to support best outcomes
Objective 3: Key fundamentals in applying this research to clinical practice
