In the context of trauma, attachment failure is inevitable, leaving a lasting imprint on all future relationships, including the therapeutic one.  Rather than experiencing others as a haven of safety, traumatized clients are driven by powerful wishes and fears of relationship.  In this presentation, we will address the impact of traumatic attachment on the ability of individuals to tolerate emotions (their own and those of others).  Exploring the effects of traumatic attachment from a psychobiological perspective opens up new ways of working with its impact on the therapeutic alliance and on other close relationships.

This webinar combines lecture and video to explore the impact of trauma on attachment behavior, utilize somatic interventions for challenging trauma-related relational patterns, and how to use ourselves as therapists as “neurobiological regulators” of the client’s dysregulated emotional and autonomic states.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to describe the effects of trauma-related attachment on affect regulation
  • Participants will be able to identify the effects of disorganized attachment on interpersonal relationships
  • Participants will be able to utilize Sensorimotor Psychotherapy interventions to address attachment and trauma-related issues in psychotherapy
  • Participants will be able to employ right brain-to-right brain techniques to help clients tolerate and benefit from psychotherapy
