IIBA is pleased to offer 2 Pre-Conference Workshops and 2 "2-days" Training Workshops for students.
Training Days May 21 - 22 (for Trainee)
Opportunity for IIBA students to combine
A 2-DAYS TRAINING WORKSHOP
A REGISTRATION TO THE NEXT IIBA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
The Training Days can benefit students who may have missed a training workshop in their regular Program and would want to make up for this missed workshop by combining a 2-days Training Workshop with their registration to the 25th International IIBA Conference.
We also ask Coordinating Trainers and regular trainers who believe some of their students could benefit from this opportunity to make up for a missed workshop, to encourage them to take advantage of this new possibility.
Two 2-days workshops will be offered on May 21-22, 2019, prior to the Conference.
There will be two (2) “tracks” so to speak:
one of the workshop will focus on a pre-clinical theme, for students who follow the pre-clinical level,
another workshop will focus on a clinical theme, for students who have reached the clinical level:
The title of the pre-clinical workshop is: “Basic Issues of Bioenergetic Analysis: New developments of neurophysiology related to emotions and trauma and the significance of self-regulation in bioenergetic body-work” and it will be led by

Terms and conditions
Limit for each workshop:
Date & time:
May 21-22, 2019, from 09:00 to 13:00 & from 14:30 to 17:00.
The workshops will be held in English since the logistics of trying to accommodate various languages proves to be hardly workable at this stage of the project.
The students who would be interested in registering for one or the other of these workshops to contact their Coordinating Trainer to get his or her approval before registering.
• Students of pre-clinical level are limited to registering for the Pre-Clinical Training Days workshops.
• Students of a clinical level have the option of registering for the Clinical workshop or to the Pre-Clinical workshop if, in consultation with the coordinating trainer, they conclude that the Pre-clinical workshop seems more appropriate to recuperate what was lost.
The registration will be done on a first come first served basis.
We encourage the students who would be interested in registering for one or the other of these workshops to contact their Coordinating Trainer to make sure that they have his or her approval before sending in their registration.
However, their names will be put on a waiting list until January 31st, 2019. By that date, if there are still openings in the workshops, they will receive within 2 weeks a confirmation of their registration to the workshop of their choice, or will be told that, regrettably, there are no openings left in the workshop they chose. The principle of first come, first served will be applied in this case as well.
Fees and Registration
The students will be asked to pay a minimal administrative fee ( 86,50 EUR ) and the cost of the room during these 2 days will be at their own charge.

Please be advised that the Workshop “Parental Love and Collaboration with the Infant” is fully booked.
Workshop 1 - Residing in the Connection: The Importance of the Pause in Couples Therapy
By the time a couple comes into therapy, they are often distressed and disconnected. They are stuck in a pattern of defensive reactivity. Lacking the tools to move through this negative cycle, the couple loses hope for finding their way back into connection on their own. This is when they come see us.
The couples are spinning in an emotional thunderstorm. Often there is shaming, blaming and criticizing. A power struggle ensues about who is right or wrong. If not careful, the therapist can get caught in the storm.
Connect. See. Hear. Feel.
What is the essence of the disconnect?
Slow down… the way out is not in the story. It’s in the connection which happens in The Pause.
Let’s spend the day exploring The Pause and see where it takes us.
This workshop will present the concept of The Pause, demonstrations and a chance for you to PAUSE.

( Workshop 2 - Parental Love and Collaboration with the Infant: The Significance of the ‘Primary Triangle’ and the Myth of Oedipus and his Perforated Feet )
In Bioenergetic Analysis most of us are familiar with the importance of affect attunement and dyadic bonding experiences in early infancy as precondition for a vital emotional life. The importance of the triad – that is the ‘Primary Triangle’ of mother, infant and father – as an important second line of development is usually less familiar. In Bioenergetic workshops, however, we often work in a triadic setting and with bodily cooperation; and triangulation is considered as necessary not to get caught in black-and-white emotional perspectives or victim-perpetrator-experiences.
Thus, the vital bodily cooperation of mother and father with their infant is tied to different physical organizing principles and fundamental for the development of a secure grounded selfhood, its prospects and our capacity for love. If the love and therefore the parents’ capacity for cooperation are disturbed, then the triad will disintegrate into dyads or monads. Such breakdowns within the ‘Primary Triangle’ challenge the development of the infant’s self and may cause psychosomatic illnesses or personality disorders.
Already within pregnancy scientist can foreknow the developmental fate of the infant knowing the conceptions of his parents concerning their future collaboration in caring for their baby (co-parenting). The missing empathic and affectionate connection and collaboration of the parents can cause a faulty development within the psyche, body and expression of love and sexuality – like it caused in Oedipus his irascible temper full of hate.
In this workshop we first will look at a good grounding within yourself and within the relationship to workshop partners. This will be the basis to work in a triadic setting which should enable you to experience some of the cooperation, alliances and systemic believes within your family of origin – and maybe some of their emotional and personal unknown limitations or even painful injuries.
Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to experience the effects of the bodily support of a third person helping a stuck dyad to relax in their stressful entanglement.
By the experiences in this workshop you might deepen your abilities to work with bodily cooperation within your therapeutic profession and your social life, and develop new perspectives of supervision processes. And for sure you will get information about the theoretical background and research about the ‘Primary Triangle’.
