This 6-week diploma is designed for parents who wish to understand the inner world of children. Children have surprising complex emotional lives and parents play a crucial role in their children’s developmental cycles and unconscious patterns, laying down the crucial bridgework from childhood to adulthood and facilitating growth, development and creativity. Childhood experiences of love and loss, sexuality and death establish patterns in the mind which have enduring effects and are often the source of later conflicts which block emotional and cognitive development. This course provides both educational and practical knowledge to parents in the job of parenting
