The workshop will present a model of therapy that will shift your theoretical framework to that of Attachment Focused therapy. This model will help you assess adult attachment categories, recognize the impact of early childhood attachment experiences on the personality development of your clients, guide your clients through the process of mourning their losses and longings and use yourself in the reparative process of therapy.
