Part 1: Attachment Theory in Action - Details:
Although attachment theory is widely accepted for its insights into early psychological development, therapists are rarely taught how to bring its insights into their day-to-day practice. Yet, an attachment-focused stance is a powerful tool in establishing a therapeutic bond with clients to help them regulate their affective state and begin rebuilding their capacity for satisfying relationships. In this workshop, you'll learn how the attachment perspective can inform the use of language, posture, emotional mirroring, and emotionally rich questions to deepen the connection of family members with each other and enable the therapist to get "inside" their experience. Role plays and videos will demonstrate a range of attachment-based interventions.
