Attachment Theory – October 2017

Aims of Day

Attachment theory has emerged as a leading therapeutic tool for understanding the deeper roots of the dynamics in a close relationship. Originally developed to explain attachments of children to their caregivers, this theory helps to explain how adults come to depend on one another.

So what disrupts attachment patterns in individuals, and how within the therapy room can reparative work take place?

The aim of the workshop will be to explore the transitional stages from the cradle to the grave, situational causes within everyday life, and how the trauma of disruption and separation can impact on the emotional and psychological well-being of the client.

This workshop is experiential, using case studies, personal experiences and group exploration.
