A toddler, 3 years old became extremely serious and sad, 6 months prior to starting IPEC therapy. She stopped smiling and laughing, her play became limited, and her general behavior slowed down till she appeared to be apathetic. Her parents could not remember anything of significance that happened in her life, at home or at her pre-school, for the last year. MT indicated a direct link to the relationship between the parents. Parents described their relationship as normal and even though they had occasional fights like every normal couple, they made sure, these fights took place away from their daughter.
MT systematically indicated that the daughter’s behavior is connected to the parents’ relationship. Only then the mom opened up to reveal that there was a severe split between her and her husband, and the latter was constantly threatening to leave his wife. MT found out that their daughter developed a belief in her mind that her parents are fighting because of her behavior, so she reduced dramatically her behavior, trying by that to have them stop their fights. Once this issue was cleared, the toddler came back to her old smiling happy child behavior within few weeks, even though there was no any improvement in her parents’ relationship.
