Participants in this workshop will explore ways to apply the understanding of attachment, trauma, brain and mind in diagnosing and treating relationship problems. A goal of the treatment is to accelerate the access to emotions in the more withdrawn partner, leading to more open communication between partners. Lecture, discussion and videotape demonstration will clarify how traumas of early disturbed bonding experiences can be seen and treated in a conjoint session.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To identify two ways traumatic experiences and early attachment traumas are re-experienced in adult attachments.
  2. To describe the differences between right-brain emotional development and left-brain cognitive development in patterns of attachment throughout the lifespan.
