Attachment through the lifespan
This presentation will apply attachment theory, the Adaptive Information Processing model, and a "parts of self' perspective to conceptualize problems in romantic relationships, parent child relationships, and mental health life-long. Participants will gain psychoeducational strategies, a "parts of self' approach, and EMDR therapy methods to help clients recognize their non-secure responses to relationship difficulties and replace non-secure with secure responses for healthier attachment relationships. Participants will learn to implement EMDR therapy strategies for revising the Early Bonding Contract and for strengthening experiences of closeness and connection between parents and children of all ages and between romantic partners.
