Date: March 30 2021 ​

Facilitator: Annette Kussin, MSW., RSW.


This training is suitable for: Educators, Mental Health and Medical Professionals, as well as Direct Service Workers.


This is a Prerequisite for the Certificate in Attachment Focused Adult Psychotherapy Advanced Course.


Description: The theory of attachment clearly describes attachment as a lifelong phenomenon. Adults continue to be impacted by their early attachment experiences in their adult relationships and self-perception. Yet most therapy for adults has not incorporated an understanding of attachment nor based therapeutic interventions on attachment principles. This webinar will teach you the categories of adult attachment, how to recognize such categories and how to assist your adult clients to progress from being insecurely attached adults to securely attached adults. The training 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 understanding their adult attachment, mourning their losses and longings and risking change to develop secure/autonomous adult attachments. You, as the therapist, will develop awareness of your own attachment style and its importance in the reparative process of therapy.


Learning objectives:

  • Recognize adult attachment categories
  • Assess adult attachment using patterns of behaviour and a modified form of the adult attachment interview
  • Use attachment as a paradigm for understanding mental health diagnoses
  • Recognize the adult brain and attachment
  • Use the model of Attachment-Focused therapy for adults
  • Make attachment the paradigm for therapeutic change
