PRI as psycho-education in practice PRI as psycho-education in practice

PRI (Past Reality Integration) is a relatively new method within psychotherapy in which the patient learns to independently recognize his dysfunctional patterns and coping behaviour, to understand the cause and to change his or her behaviour.

PRI therapy is a meta-approach in which evidence-based elements come together in a specific way, including cognitive behavioural therapy, trauma therapy focused on early childhood experiences and a schema-focused approach.

The method provides new insights into and an effective approach for serious psychological complaints such as anxiety, depression, stress, burnout (prevention), aggression, addictions, loneliness and eating disorders.

Many positive experiences have been gained in general practice with the use of PRI as psychoeducation. That is why PRI-Nederland organizes free online webinars for general practitioners and POH-GGZ’s on various themes.

During these webinars, you will learn to explain the PRI theory and how and when to apply it on the basis of demos. Also, you will learn to practice PRI on yourself, e.g. as burnout prevention.

Timely identification of psychological complaints in expectant parents. (accredited for 2 points by the KNOV)

It is becoming increasingly clear that trauma around birth (perinatal) and in the first 1000 days after birth plays a central role in the develop psychopathology meaning later in life.

Trauma refers to stressful experiences of the baby in the broadest sense, in which the environment of the child is not able to fulfil his or her needs.
For example, if a parent is overloaded and emotionally unavailable to the child. Severe cases may involve trauma such as sexual abuse, violence, and physical or emotional neglect.

As a midwife, you play an important role in this precarious period
in the lives of mother and child. Directly in your professional guidance, but also indirectly, because you can pick up signals that indicate that a mother or family needs extra support in caring for the (unborn) baby.
