This seminar outlines the draft of prenatal and perinatal centred psychotherapy for adults. The focus of attention will be early bonding processes and their influence on personality development.
The theory is based on the concept of Bipolar Self (Jakel 2001, 2004, 2008), the integrative method is the focusing  work on attachment versus primary resistance within the analytic frame. Thus early regressive moods can appear and be worked out within the transference and countertransference frame work.
The seminar introduces some introspective ways of the PPP method. Step by step it will be demonstrated, how the techniques of self- perception are functioning like body-  sensations,visualisation and its expression due to intuitive drawing focused on pre- and perinatal experiencing. Based on this material it will be analysed how the pre- and perinatal trauma can be stored and expressed at the level of implicit memory. The methodological approach focuses on body as a symbolic language of early experience. The practical aspects of  introspection will be experienced at two technical levels: with and without breathing.
Thus early trauma may be reactivated, reaching back into a pre- and perinatal period of time. The techniques of deep perceiving will be demonstrated followed by integration steps. The introspection of inner experience is followed by exploration of data which includes analysis of inner and outer perception and synthesis based on associated facts.
