TRAUMA INTEGRATION IN THE NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT
APPLICATION OF CASTELLINO
PRENATAL AND BIRTH THERAPY

A Forthcoming Memoir

PREFACE

I am far from the most experienced practitioner of Castellino Prenatal

and Birth Therapy (CPBT) and far from the most experienced biodynamic

craniosacral therapist. Throughout the writing, I have done my best to not

overreach while honoring what is. I have over 875 contact hours working

with infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Something potent

is happening. I hope that sharing my NICU experience may inspire the

managers of NICUs to consider something else; inspire parents of children

in the NICU to discover the deep connection they can have with and

support they can provide to the soul(s) they have brought into this world;

provide a reference for practitioners of CPBT and biodynamic craniosacral

therapy (BCST) who work in the NICU; provide encouragement for CPBT

and BCST practitioners to enter the NICU, where they otherwise may not go;

and help the layperson appreciate the great sensitivity and intelligence with which

they entered this world, the accurate reflection they needed and likely did not

receive, the old trauma they carry in their body that has become unspoken

weight, and to have the courage to feel the pain of that loss that they

might step into their full self.
