Creating A Human Being

With Klaus Kaeppeli-Valaulta
Therapists in the field of pre- and perinatal psychology get to work increasingly with children who entered life thanks to assisted reproduction technologies.

While science attempts to improve the success rate of artificial insemination, new questions arise on a psychological level. What are the repercussions of an assisted, artificial way into life for the individual and for their family? What are the impacts on the bond between parents and child?
Experiences of children and parents show how much the resilience of a family system is being challenged way beyond birth.

Klaus Käppeli-Valaulta is a Swiss psychologist and psychotherapist who addressed this important topic at the 2019 Baby Conference in Bristol. In this conversation, Klaus presents an overview of the different aspects that need to be taken into account when working with families where an artificially induced pregnancy was chosen.
