We all may know that we are neurobiologically designed for Secure Attachment but the critical question is: How do we help our clients return there if they did not hit the jackpot by starting out with it in the first place? 

It is often said, it is much easier to learn a theory than to put one into practice. We might have read a lot of books on Attachment and have a good theoretical understanding. However, as therapists how do we go beyond theory to become effective practitioners for our clients?

I’ve developed a series of four workshops on Attachment & Trauma Resolution to give you the tools and practice to confidently work with your clients.In these interactive workshops you will have access to live demos, lectures, media presentations and small group practices and exercises. For 2015, I want you to become your clients’ number one support resource helping them identify their attachment style and learn special healing techniques. That is why I’ve designed this special line up. Peruse this list and signup soon!

“If you can learn to be skillful with repair, you can actually have a stronger relationship after a mistake, because repair is very, very powerful!”
