In this module we will focus on how everyone can attain deeper connection, meaning, and passion in adult relationships by working to heal early attachment wounds or disruptions. You will learn to understand unconscious dynamics that block our capacity for intimacy, and how to overcome them in order to achieve better communication, trust and closeness. We will explore specific examples of how early patterns developed within our families may obscure our innate ability to bond. We will work with the 4 models as described in Attachment Theory – Secure, Avoidant, Ambivalent, and Disorganized.
In addition to working with the original wounding pattern, we will focus on how to excavate the intrinsic healthy attachment system that exists naturally in our human design. You will learn and practice the application of Somatic strategies, DARe / SATe techniques, and Corrective Experiences to alleviate deep-rooted, distressful attachment issues.
We are all inherently hardwired to heal – we have an innate ability to overcome the effects of trauma and unleash the core aliveness we all possess.
This workshop will be a blend of didactic presentation, demonstrations and experiential exercises. Leave this workshop clearly understanding the practical application of Somatic Experiencing® principles, techniques and Corrective Experiences to alleviate stuck attachment patterns. As you explore this material and your own attachment history, you will discover how to help your clients heal this important part of our human journey.
Participants will learn:
- To identify how over-coupling dynamics between early childhood “family of origin” attachment patterns may play out in adult relationships.
- To be able to define the distinctions between Secure, Avoidant, Ambivalent, and Disorganized Attachment models.
- How to use Corrective Experiences to aid in resolving fixed attachment patterns.
- How to facilitate “Earned Attachment” which means a return to healthy Secure Attachment that occurs as you repair and heal early bonding wounds. Workshop includes live demos, lectures, interactive exercises and DVD presentations.
