Our Post-Graduate  Program aims to:

1. Respond to the International Need for a responsible second level academic educational program in the field of Pre/Perinatal Psychology & Health. Such a program does not run in any academic institution as most of the knowledge involved is recent. Thus, there is a huge need for professionals to get access to this field of knowledge to update and further progress their service to the people.

2. Prepare young scientists to become effective therapists, educators and service providers who are knowledgeable in both traditional psychotherapeutic modalities and prenatal and perinatal approaches to psychotherapy.

3. To enable them to transmit those high ideals, moral values and inspiration so that the trainees can serve life the best possible way.

4. To provide effective primary Health Promotion programs, run by highly trained professionals.

5. To provide an up-to-date evidence-based curriculum that emphasizes the development of knowledge related to the scientific and empirical aspects of prenatal psychology and health

6. To provide secure professional recognition of the successful on completion students

7. To provide access to those international learners who cannot attend such a course in their country using secure, innovative educational tools and online educational platform.

Teaching/ learning methods & strategies

A. Knowledge & Understanding

The acquisition of knowledge is through

structured lectures,

student-led seminars,

expert-led workshops,

reflection projects,

skills sessions,



work-based learning tasks.

Additional support is provided through digital library facilities with a good number of articles and extensive bibliographical material.

Throughout the educational course, the student is encouraged to undertake independent reading both to supplement and consolidate what is being taught/learnt and to broaden individual knowledge and understanding of the subject.

Self-study is necessary and includes a number of scientific fields in an interdisciplinary context. IT skills are needed and are supported in all means.

B. Skills & Competencies

Teaching and learning of subject and professional skills and competencies takes place in a variety of forms across all modules.

Case studies are used to analyze data and provide feedback connecting theory and practice.
Audio and video files are presented and analyzed.
Students are also given the opportunity to observe and reflect upon various environments, are given projects to create services and procedures to exercise professional skills.
Group work is asked where possible and group projects are offered to encourage co-operation.
digital community facilitates local/ national and global exchange expertise.

C. Thinking/ Intellectual Skills

Thinking/ Intelelctual skills are developed through the use of problem solving scenarios and other activities that facilitate critical decision making, cross-cultural comparisons, conception and design of services and processes and evaluation of given practices. The integration of theory and community health promotion project design is an integral part of the program.

Our Post-Graduates Are PRECIOUS in the World

There is a great need for our (post-) graduates and these are some of the sectors they are indispensable:
More Specifically:

Our graduates can recognize the deep origins of what is connected with what phenomena, signs and psychosomatic conditions. Diagnosis is up to the point as concerns the psychospiritual mental factors running in the background. Thus, all energy is devoted to rewiring and re-educating the human being in Health paths and relationships with the others in the world that promote wellbeing.

Our graduates can
start their own enterprise or health service company in the fields of Prenatal counselling and Prenatal psychotherapy, offer Primal Health Advancement Programs working with young adults who think of parenthood, pregnant couples, newborns, babies, teenagers and the maternal environment. They are ideal to work towards establishing the foundations of human health and wellbeing with huge gains for the society, peace, civilization and the economy of each country.

Are valuable team members in any research towards the wellbeing of the human community as not only they have the knowledge how to do it but have developed the skills and competences which make them team members that add value to the research outcomes.
Bring the experience of working in innovative, multidisciplinary, multicultural environments. With innovation and technology making huge leaps every day, familiarity in the innovative environments can be a significant asset for all stakeholders.
As professionals they become updated and develop leadership in their chosen service field as they have developed a better understanding of their science and they improve their service as pediatricians, medicals, social workers, educators etc. As scientific research and evidence-based knowledge moves in the fast lane, all known 10 years ago are not enough to meet the needs of today. 
Especially important

Midwives, obstetricians, pregnancy educators , psychiatrists and psychologists need to have this knowledge. They are present at these early beginnings of a human being and the support and guidance they can offer to the maternal environment has life-lasting effects. Contemporary challenges such as huge c-section statistics almost globally, high numbers of preemies with all burdens for all involved, abuse and neglect of children and mothers in the family, technology-assisted pregnancies and issues of ethics in genetics make this expert knowledge a must.

Our Graduates after the post-graduate program are unique as they are experts in Prenatal Psychology

Our prenatal midwives and prenatal educators are indispensable to work with pregnant couples from before conception to after birth


Accompany pregnant couples from before conception to after post-partum

Those who come from the world of business and have entrepreneurial spirit can assimilate the knowledge gained and conceive, design, implement and operate products and services which will support our babies and the maternal environment (in the narrow meaning as well as the wide meaning of the term) so that people come to this world with fewer challenges and more opportunities or as parents/ adults/ teens and kids can use to add more value to their human experience. 


Our Graduates are indispensable in the primary education schools: Nursery schools, playgrounds, and kidergartens are the spaces where we find our babies and then our young children. As these spaces replace homes, the educators and staff become parental figures for these children. An educator or staff member that can understand the pre/perinatal dynamics of each child's experience can become a healing environment and contribute to the trauma release so that the child can freely fulfil his/her creative potential.

All members of the staff of such places need to have this expert knowledge: From the syllabus design, the mentors and leaders of the educational programs in operation, to the provision of what is needed to create a healing environment in such places (from architectural design, choice of play activities, toys, images, sound background, educational material,  furniture and equipment) to attitudes, communication and collaboration.

Our Graduates can make a difference either as colleagues and staff working for the state or in the private sector.

Teachers and staff in the secondary education who are our graduates can do the same as above and be healing figures and mentors for the teenagers, who have the second chance to move beyond their pre/perinatal trauma and thrive.

Our Graduates are people who are peace-makers and ideal models for our young generation. Hooliganism, violence, school bullying, teenage pregnancies and contemporary challenges can turn into opportunities for a peaceful, creative collaboration with meaning. 


Our early pre/perinatal imprints become the framework for all challenges and opportunities in our personal and professional life. Unresolved prenatal/perinatal issues of rejection, ambivalence or optimum welcome beginnings  repeat in work environments and create challenges for all involved. Our post-graduate students are a treasure in such environments especially in the Human Resources Departments

Our Graduates are ENOLUTIONARIES!
