Attachment, separation and loss in couples work

Introduction

This two-day experiential and applied workshop will build your confidence in working with issues linked to attachment, separation and loss in couples work.

In this workshop we focus on attachment styles, their significance for couples’ relationships and the implications for clinical work.  When isolation and loss are potentially traumatising we will consider how best to support couples who experience these within their relationship or during separation.

You can expect to:

  • BUILD CONFIDENCE IN WORKING WITH DIFFERENT ATTACHMENT STYLES.
  • ATTEND TO THE IMPACT OF YOUR OWN ATTACHMENT STYLE IN COUPLES WORK.
  • UNDERSTAND THE INFUENCE OF EARLY TRAUMA AND LOSS IN RELATIONSHIPS, IN SEPERATION AND IN COUPLES WORK.
  • LEARN POTENT PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL INTERVENTIONS.
  • BE PART OF A SUPPORTIVE TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT GROUP.
