Supporting Successful Breastfeeding Dr. Ray Castellino Paper 2004 Free Download
The purpose of this article is to introduce new ways to establish nursing and supporting infant self-attachment needs. The article presents how we discovered babies' innate ability to find their own way to the breast, when placed on their mom's abdomen during the immediate post natal period. Clinical examples included are from home birth and establishing 1st time breast-feeding with a baby 6 weeks old. Practitioner skills to facilitate this process are presented. These basic skills are oriented to help practitioners develop their ability to center themselves and self-regulate, to have a somatic awareness of themselves and the client, and to be able to track rhythm, tempo and the very slow attunement rhythms that support optimal autonomic nervous system functioning.
The Castellino Prenatal and Birth Therapy Supervision Process Dr. Ray Castellino Paper 2011 Free Download
This paper discusses information that Ray Castellino developed for himself, trainees in the Castellino Prenatal and Birth Therapy Training, individual and group supervision clients, and staff at BEBA (Building and Enhancing Bonding and Attachment). It discusses what supervision is, why it is important on a personal and professional level, what might be covered in a supervision session, and some of the forms — individual, group, etc. — that it might take. It will present the structure for supervision that Ray uses for himself when he receives supervision and that he use with his supervisees. Key to this structure are the practitioner's process, the formulation of an intention for the session, and de-emphasizing story as the session's focal point.
