Autumn attachment webinars: Working with insecure attachments
This webinar is the second one of a series of three autumn webinars that deal with attachment, psychodynamics and neuroscience (APN). Tickets available through Eventbrite.
About this event
This webinar will be particularly attractive to trainee psychologists, psychiatrists, assistant psychologists, counsellors and/or other mental health professionals. The webinar is also open for undergraduate students and/or members of the general public who wish to get a basic understanding of the topic.
A recording of the webinar will be made available for everybody who purchases a ticket (available for free for seven days). Thus, the webinar can be attended both live and/or on-demand.
Themes of the webinar:
- Introduce participants to insecure attachment defences, internal conflicts and their impact on emotional dysregulation.
- Understand attachment and dynamic techniques to work with insecure attachment presentations (mentalization, front door defences, establishing unconscious and conscious working alliances).
- Develop a framework for an effective understanding and intervening with patients that struggle to attend, use avoidance mechanisms or have difficulties to separate.
It is expected that this webinar will enhance your reflective and formulation skills when working with cancer patients. The webinars will be divided as follows:
a) Introductions and housekeeping (15 minutes)
b) Lecture (75 minutes)
c) Informal group discussion, questions and reflections (30 minutes)
