Adult attachment and relationship: What does it mean for therapy?
In this new course moving on from Bowlby, we look at the latest in adult attachment theory and how it impacts on client, therapist and the therapy as a whole. We will look at the links between trauma and attachment and the latest neuroscience developments.
As with all our workshops, we'll take a practical look at how we can utilise current knowledge in our work with clients and what it adds to our understanding of how we work with our clients. Inevitably with this course, we'll look at our own attachment styles and ways of being in relationship with others.
