Infant Centred Family Work (ICFW) is based on the work of Dr Ray Castellino, DC RPP of the BEBA clinic in California, who states that
Optimal development occurs with the timely
resolution of early trauma and the resulting
secure attachment between parents and children.
ICFW comes from the understanding that babies and children ‘know’. It utilises some of the best body based therapies, including Craniosacral, in combination with an understanding of prenatal and birth imprinting and modalities to resolve adverse imprinting
This work supports parents and primary carers in understanding what their child is expressing naturally through body language, emotions and play.
ICFW helps resolve past traumatic imprints that have created such symptoms as difficulties with breast feeding, colic, excessive crying, and sleep issues.
The nervous system feels more settled, integrated and balanced. There is more opportunity for deeper loving connections with family, and increased attachment and bonding.
David has found this work especially useful for special needs babies and children.
