Psychodynamic and attachment therapy basics
This seminar will be particularly attractive to trainee psychologists, psychiatrists, assistant psychologists, counsellors and/or other mental health professionals.

This seminar aims to:
- Establish a clear definition of what psychodynamic therapy is and what it isn't.
- Understand the basic skills and techniques of psychodynamic and attachment based treatments.
- Examine how modern research in neuroscience and attachment informs contemporary psychodynamic therapy practice.
- Highlight how psychodynamic thinking can help improve clinical thinking and a robust understanding of mental health difficulties.
