The aim of the seminar series is to introduce the participants directly to the general developmental processes. Also, it will strengthen their ability to recognize early signs of emotional disorders and disturbed relations from their beginning, before they become deeply rooted in hard to change models of behaviour.
The seminars will take place on Zoom platform once a week and 80 minutes of duration. There will be two seminar groups, each with maximum 6 participants.
