Healing childhood wounds is key for enjoying fulfilling relationships as an adult. This workshop will be a blend of lecture, experiential exercises, guided imagery meditations, and multimedia presentations. You will be introduced to the fundamental concepts of Attachment Styles: Secure, Ambivalent/Preoccupied, Avoidant/Dismissive and Disorganized, as well as how they impact adult relationships.

Dr. Diane Poole Heller’s groundbreaking approach will help you learn what the hallmarks are for identifying each style, as well as what is needed to enhance secure attachment.

As you explore this material and your own attachment history, you will discover how to heal this important part of the human journey, overcoming the grip of past wounds to have more fun, deeper connection, and healthy intimacy in relationships.

Participants will learn to:

  • identify how dynamics between early childhood “family of origin” attachment patterns
    may play out in adult relationships.
  • define the distinctions between Secure, Avoidant, Ambivalent, and Disorganized
    Attachment models.
  • use Corrective Experiences to aid in resolving fixed attachment patterns.
  • facilitate “Earned Attachment”, which means a return to healthy Secure Attachment
    that occurs as early bonding wounds are repaired and healed.
