What material does this seminar cover?
- An introduction to the latest research on attachment
- A presentation of the Attachment-based Developmental paradigm (Gabor Mate and Gordon Neufeld): how healthy attachment development across the lifespan progresses through 6 stages leading to full maturation (or the term self-actualisation used by Maslow and the humanistic psychologists).
- With more secure attachment, greater potential for human development occurs. The three processes of maturation (adaptation, integration and emergence) are explored through the lens of ‘what happened’ rather than ‘what’s wrong’ with this client, to impact their functioning?
Other key questions which will be addressed include:
- Can our clients be too attached?
- What leads to defensive detachment?
- What is involved in attachment healing?
- How can our clients gain earned secure attachment?
Spaces are limited. Contact us today to make a pencil booking if you are seeking funding approval.
Who Should Attend:
Mental health professionals, educators (teachers, teacher aides, RTLB’s, school counsellors), social workers, counsellors, Justice Dept staff (Corrections, Police). Those supporting both adults and children who are displaying attachment issues, or developmental trauma.
