-birth trauma release

btr- vision

Line Denneche, er personen bak BTR. Hun er tobarnsmor og har vært Biodynamisk Kroppsorientert Psykoterapeut og trener siden slutten av 90-tallet. Hun har alltid hatt dyp interesse og engasjement for fødsels- og spedbarnstraumer i sitt arbeide med voksne i terapi.


Egen erfaring og kunnskap om hvilke langtids-konsekvenser dette kan få for kvinner og barn, har over tid ført til et program for Doulas, Jordmødre, Psykoterapeuter og andre utøvere i feltet. 

Programmet kalles BTR - Birth Trauma Release - Forløsning av Fødseltraumer.


Målet er å gi dyp kunnskap om mekanismene som skjer i kroppen, psyken og sjelen i denne dype prosessen. Og på denne måten kunne forhindre langsiktig skade.

Dette seminaret er en introduksjon til ett års kurs bestående av fem kurshelger som hver varer i fire hele dager. Kursene vil bli holdt i Oslo og London med oppstart i januar 2022.

BTR -Birth Trauma Release
-Assistance to the mother and the child during pregnancy, birth, and puerperium

a one-year course

London 02.02.2022 – 04.12.2022

This is a one-year course designed for anyone who works with women and/or children around the special time of birth. The course will be particularly relevant for midwives, doulas, psychotherapists, and others who are interested in learning more about this topic.

The teaching focuses on how one can support mother and child throughout gestation and delivery, but it will also address how one can meet and work with women and others who have experienced trauma in connection with parturition.

The work will be preemptive — the focus will be on learning what creates the safest conditions for mother and child.

It will also be action-oriented — the focus will be on how to intervene when a specific situation arises,

And it will be therapeutic, with a focus on the processing of birth trauma for both the mother and adults who have been traumatised at the time of their birth.

The techniques used will include:

  • body psychotherapy

  • biodynamic massage

  • «trauma-release» and vegetotherapy

  • Mindfulness meditation and somatic experience

  • Body oriented methods for couples 

  • Family constellation work

  • Visualization techniques and use of imagery

  • psycho-peristalsis (involuntary, intuitive gut responses), to activate the body’s self-healing component—which can help to prevent trauma and support the whole system to process it if trauma does occur.


During the course you will learn to anchor in your center, in order to be able to make space for the women and, possibly, the children you are working with.


The course consists of five, four-day long modules. 


Course start: Wednesdays, 3 p.m.

Course end: Sundays, 1 p.m.
