There are currently over 400 specific approaches to psychotherapy and many therapeutic tribes. Attachment theory and science with its intrapsychic and relational focus offers the therapist a broad, integrative but systematic guide to the nature of dysfunction and health and how to move individuals, couples and families from one to the other. This presentation will offer a guide as to how this science can help to make our sessions relevant and on target in terms of leading to better affect regulation, cognitive coherence and supportive, stable relationships.
- Describe the key elements of attachment theory and science relevant to the tasks of therapy.
- List specifically how these elements connect to key processes and change events.
- Describe specific interventions that arise from the attachment perspective.
