Sample text

We always remembered our aim, which is to bring mother and child into a joyful, individual and ‘natural’ relationship. The order of the exercises was pre-determined: we began with grounding and continued in the following order with exercises on co-ordination, feeling strength, confidence, qualities of touching and ending with nurturing. The exercises were decreasing in physical activity and ending with quiet time, which corresponds to a reversed order of the stages of child development. At the end of each session the therapist wrote a short protocol for each dyad, registering the exercises and his observations.

The aims of the programme are both educational and therapeutic and are intertwined in the daily work with the children. Working with their deficits, filling in their lack of ordinary developmental experiences, and building up new skills are mainly educational tasks. Working with their early traumas, internalised conflicts, and suppressed feelings are more therapeutic tasks. Above all, we need to strengthen their egos by increasing their selfawareness, self-expression, and self-possession [Lowen, 1989].

Throwing the ball or kicking it are the two exercises that have been the most successful. Both these interventions demonstrate that children will naturally discharge through their feet while activating the aggressive areas in the upper and lower back. Depending on the individual patient, the ball is directed at the wall or the staff. This is a judgement call with different outcomes. Because the EMI is used to organise the child and not increase the child’s chaotic state, the inanimate character of the wall is most often used.
