Diane Poole Heller • Friday All Day
LOCATION: BLUE PRE-FUNCTION ROOM
Many clients bring to therapy the remnants of attachment wounds experienced before they learned to speak, so talk therapy is often ineffective at getting to the root of early memories that can continue to roil emotions and disturb relationships. This workshop presents a new approach to correcting insecure attachment through corrective experiences that specifically address the emotional injuries they incurred in early life. You’ll learn how to:
- Identify the different styles of troubled attachment with special emphasis on the avoidant and disorganized styles
- Recognize why some clients begin to disconnect and dissociate once they’ve formed a positive attachment with the therapist
- Enhance your skills for creating a secure attachment bond by picking up on nonverbal cues from clients, increasing your awareness of your own nonverbals, and incorporating well-timed humor and playfulness in your style
This session will continue with workshop 314.
