P004, Attachment, Session 3, Dan Siegel


Welcome to “The Attuned Therapist: Attachment Theory in Action,” with Dan Siegel—the third session in our newest webinar course, “The Great Attachment Debate.” As you probably know by now—if you attended the 2010 Symposium, read our March/April 2010 issue on attachment, or heard from Networker Editor Rich Simon in this webinar—a “great debate” on attachment occurred live—spontaneously—at last year’s conference.

At one of Jerome Kagan’s workshops, his comments regarding attachment theory prompted Attachment Theory advocate Dan Siegel, M.D., to unexpectedly get up in front of the crowd and respond on the spot. This heated debate between two respected minds in the field sparked much discussion at the conference and afterward.

In this webinar session, Siegel will discuss how Attachment Theory is integrated into his clinical approach.  He’ll talk about how to use the Adult Attachment Interview in assessing clients, applying brain science in the consulting room, brain integration and how it can enhance self-regulation, and much more.

Please take a few moments to comment on what you felt was most striking, most relevant, or to ask any questions you may have. We encourage you, as always, to include your name and hometown with your comments. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with this community.
