Course outline

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.

Learn tools and techniques of self-directed neuroplasticity to help clients:

  • understand the different styles of attachment and identify their own patterns of attachment;
  • understand how clients are helping their own children in creating attachments – and strategies for adjusting attachment styles;
  • reverse the impact of stress and trauma;
  • regulate the emotions that arise from anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, guilt and shame;
  • deepen the self-compassion and empathy that connect them to their inner resources;
  • overcome resistance and strengthen the resonant relationships that foster resilience;
  • shift their perspectives through mindful awareness and reflection to discern options and make wise choices.

You will learn:

  • The impact of the four styles of attachment on brain development and functioning;
  • The impact of your style of attachment on clinical effectiveness with various clients
  • Four mechanisms of brain change to rewire internal working models of attachment and install new, more resilient patterns of behaviour into implicit memory;
  • Body-based tools to recover the brain’s natural physiological equilibrium and emotional stability that expand the window of tolerance;
  • To use memory deconsolidation-reconsolidation to rewire traumatic memories and revise one’s personal sense of self and self-worth;
  • To harness the power of positive emotions to shift the regulatory and relational capacities of the brain from contracted, rigid survival responses to broader, more flexible and optimistic responses;
  • To use practices of mindful self-compassion to shift out of the brain’s ruminative negative judgements of the inner critic and create new behaviours of self-acceptance and self-appreciation
  • To use empathy and attunement to strengthen the executive functioning of the pre-frontal cortex to build resilience and recover a client’s inner secure base;
  • Skills of relational intelligence that deepen a client’s capacities for intimacy and community.
