Course Description

In this 4 hour follow-up on the introductory DBR course, Dr. Frank Corrigan will discuss the DBR approach to working with the aftermath of neglect in early childhood.

It is well-recognised that neglect in early life can damage the development of the brain and, thereby, various cognitive, emotional, and behavioural functions. The DBR hypothesis for this is that the absence of what is needed inevitably causes pain and that this would activate pain pathways in the body that travel through the spinal cord to the brainstem. Inchoate pain signals and the neurochemical responses to them impact the most basic sense of self. We will explore how we can use grounding in the ProtoSelf before we obtain the orienting tension and open the file related to neglect.
