Much of the distress and dysfunction clients present with in therapy has deep roots in the wounds of early attachment. Clients weren’t loved enough, protected enough, validated in their own essential beingness. Attachment experiences can strengthen or derail a client’s developing sense of self-worth, self-efficacy, and resilience. Early interpersonal interactions especially shape the development and maturation of the brain itself, strengthening or derailing the flexibility in the brain’s functioning that would allow clients to learn more complex, more adaptive coping strategies later.
Research in attachment theory, behavioural science, relational psychology, and trauma therapy, has guided clinicians in developing interventions and modalities of treatment that help clients recover a healthy inner secure base. Clinicians become “re-parenting” figures, teaching clients new skills, deepening their emotional-relational intelligence, and helping them develop far more adaptive strategies for navigating their world.
Helping clients deal effectively with the challenges and crises inevitable in life is the heart of our therapeutic work. Modern neuroscience is teaching us how to safely, efficiently, effectively rewire any of the brain’s maladaptive coping behaviours that keep clients “stuck” in dysfunction. Clients can reverse the impacts of stress and trauma, including attachment trauma, and come out of anxiety, depression, loneliness and shame into a genuine resilience and well-being.
Modern neuroscience is now illuminating how to teach clients to harness their own brain’s mechanisms for healing - the brain’s innate neuroplasticity - to rewire deeply embedded trauma memories and create new automatic - more wholesome - patterns of thinking/feeling/behaving.
This two day, experiential workshop will teach you how to harness the brain’s own mechanisms of change to help your clients shift their coping strategies from defensive, dysfunctional and inhibiting of growth to adaptive, flexible and resilient. Clinicians will learn the latest applications of modern brain science to healing attachment trauma, experimenting with dozens of tools and techniques that safely, efficiently, effectively rewire the brain, helping clients reverse the impacts of stress and trauma, come out of anxiety, depression, loneliness, and shame, into a genuine thriving and flourishing.
