For people who have experienced trauma and fear, attachment failure can be an inevitability, and the experience of trauma leaves its mark on all subsequent relationships, including the therapeutic relationship. Rather than experiencing closeness as a haven of safety, the traumatized person will develop fears associated with relationship. Because one's capacity for tolerating affect without becoming overwhelmed depends upon secure attachment, challenges will surface in relationships as a result of a person's vulnerability to affect dysregulation.
In this web conference, we will address the impact of traumatic attachment experiences on affect regulation and learn to work with the relational and somatic legacies of attachment. Material will draw on neuroscience, attachment research, and sensorimotor psychotherapy, a body-centered talk therapy designed to treat trauma and affect dysregulation. We will look at implementing interventions that challenge trauma-related patterns in relationships and methods for helping regulate our clients' dysregulated autonomic and emotional states.
This intermediate instructional level web conference is designed to help clinicians:
