Year 1 | Session 4: Development I – Body-mind Interruptions
4 Days | 28 hours of Instruction
Informed by Object Relations, Cognitive Behavioral, and Bowlby & Ainsworth Attachment theory, students are taught developmental themes about self and core beliefs (e.g., Michael Balint’s Basic Fault) that arise from early infant and mother/parent interaction resulting from bonding and attunement injuries (e.g., lack or inadequate quality of attachment and/or attunement).
Applying the IBP Diagnostic Model, students learn how to identify the development of the Basic Fault, and defuse any undermining body-mind false sense of self and others manifested by emotional injury. Applying modalities of authentic mirroring and other IBP techniques of therapeutic intervention interrupt the repetitive defensive patterns and foster integration of a core self and sense of well-being.
