The Vihula master class for post graduates will be hold by Iver Hecht, a Danish psychologist, psychotherapist, chock-trauma therapist, supervisor, trainer and author. Iver Hecht is the headmaster of Vibygaard, a family treatment centre in Denmark.

At Vibygaard the professional team work with families having attachment disorders. They work with Holding Therapy, which aims at healing existential psychological and relational wounds by physical, emotional contact between parents and child. They help getting parents becoming aware of and understand own wounds, and facilitate the healing process in themselves and in their children.

Iver Hecht and his team have shown amazing results.

Iver is an expert on attachment issues, both in theory and practice. You will in this seminar deepen your awareness of yourself, get knowledge and practice of how to work with attachment in adults, children and families in healing broken contact in the early attachment phases.

Iver Hecht says:

” Many families are calling for help. And too often they are met by insufficient case management, half-hearted depositions and too long investigations on parent competencies.

Intensive co-work is the way forward.

We will have to change our view on humanity and focus on what we human beings are deeply dependent on, our close relations. Relations that widely are created in the early attachment between parents and children.

Children are extremely loyal towards their biological parents and vice versa.

Very strong ties are existing, both conditional biological and psychological.

This reciprocity means that father and mother act on what they believe is the best for the child. Some parents do not have the psychological and economical resources, because having been growing up in vulnerable families themselves and having been betrayed by parents and society. But still these parents want to do what is best for their children.

When I worked in the psychiatric system, we noticed how parents were reduced to annoying relatives.

In the social area, parents are too easily perceived as opponents to the child! But mostly the parents wish all the best for their children – and they are driven by the love, that is the most important raw material in the relation between human beings.

Instead of perceiving the parents as opponents to the children, we have to recognize and cooperate with them and give them all the support they need.”
