German term or phrase: Schutz- und Rückbildung
A kind of therapy treatment sequence which can be carried out in a "Prenatal environment" tent thingy, along with anti-aggresion and breaking down stereotypes...

Anyone know?!? Thanks!

development of defense mechanisms, regression
Explanation:
I found the website to which you are referring, and I'd try to keep this as general as possible.

Schutzbildung would be s.th. like development (or formation) of defense mechanisms / protective mechanisms (or something to that effect), Rückbildung here would be regression.
Reuter also lists involution and catagenesis for Rückbildung (also in the context of psychology), but I didn't find anything to support either term within this context.

"Defense mechanisms +psychology" brings up a number of hits, however, all of them on sites originating from German universities.

Hope this is at least of some help...

Thankyou very very much for such a swift answer, it was urgent! I am going to buy some key technical dictionaries this Christmas...I really need better resources than my few, smaller specialist old dics. If you have any recommendations of the best general tech dics, could you send me a brief email to jameshumphreys@yahoo.com? Thanks a lot!
