Developing Secure Attachment: Two-Part Online Workshop

 

 

In this Webinar:

This online workshop with Dr. Lisa Firestone will provide tools to help people heal insecure attachment, resolve trauma, integrate their emotions, and flourish in all their relationships.

This two-part online workshop will introduce:

  • How childhood attachment patterns affect individuals and their relationships
  • A framework for resolving childhood trauma
  • A process to develop earned secure attachment
  • Cutting-edge neurobiological research findings to help rewire the brain
  • Step-by-step guidelines for how to write a coherent narrative

Every person carries around deep wounds, behaviors, and beliefs about themselves and others from their earliest attachments that unconsciously direct their lives. Early relationships help shape a person’s adult romantic relationships, how they will parent, and how they expect others to react to them.

Attachment research shows that when people fail to make sense of their past, they find themselves reliving and recreating it, essentially re-experiencing old hurts over and over again. However, making sense of the past is the best predictor of one’s ability to shape their future.

This two-part online workshop will introduce the tools for individuals to dig deep and resolve old traumas, big and small, so that they no longer haunt them. For mental health professionals, it will provide strategies to apply these tools with your clients.

This workshop will draw upon the latest attachment research and outline the process of writing a coherent narrative. Research in neurobiology shows that when a person writes a coherent narrative, they actually rewire their brain to feel more secure within themselves and their relationships, developing earned secure attachment.

This online workshop will include access to a video Toolkit of exercises to help you calm down and regulate your emotions as you work through understanding your attachment history and developing earned security.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  1. Explain how child attachment patterns continue to affect people throughout their lives.
  2. Describe, using cutting edge neurobiological research, how clients can rewire their brains to feel more secure.
  3. Discuss how a patient, through the process of psychotherapy, can develop an earned secure attachment in adulthood.
  4. Access step-by-step guidelines for how to help clients develop a coherent narrative for their life.

Wonderful work taking place. Trying to understand the grey areas are essential for change. I’m always looking to find the grey but of course need direction. Decided to start looking for a long lasting relationship and trying to do the work to find out what that’s all about. At 55 it’s now something I’m interested in. This article seems to be in the right direction.

Is this webinar the same as the one entitled, “Making Sense of Your Life” (for $79) shown at the following link: http://ecourse.psychalive.org/making-sense-of-your-life-ecourse-dan-siegel-lisa-firestone/?utm_source=psychalive&utm_medium=article&utm_campaign=attachment%20style

It is not the same course, although some of the content is similar. The eCourse Making Sense of Your Life is taught by Dr. Dan Siegel and Dr. Lisa Firestone, that course includes video interviews of Dan and Lisa, as well as hands-on exercises for creating a coherent narrative. The Developing Secure Attachment Online Workshop consists of two Webinars, where Dr. Lisa Firestone explains attachment and how to develop earned security in adulthood.

Hi, This webinar says it will provide tools to “help heal insecure attachment”. I had learned about this webinar referenced in one of the authors articles about Dismissive Avoidant attachment. Does this webinar provide information about avoidant attachment and how to become more secure?
