Attachment - An integrating framework for 21st century, science based psychotherapy
There are now over 1,000 different names for psychotherapy and over 400 specific models of intervention addressing an escalating number of disorders. This is problematic for the field of psychotherapy. A coherent body of developmental, social and personality science on attachment now offers therapists a map for self and relational system that cogently outlines both dysfunction and health – and how to lead clients from one to the other. This presentation will outline the strengths of this integrating framework as a general and specific in-session guide for individual, couple and family therapy, focusing on the map it offers for affect regulation, cognitive restructuring and behavior change.
Outline the core features of attachment and how they challenge older approaches.
Describe the relevance of these features for the process of change across modalities.
Link the attachment framework to specific interventions in individual, couple and family therapy.
Describe the promise of attachment science for the future of psychotherapy.
For the first time in the United States, Creating Connections 2016 brought together the world's most-renowned and followed neuroscience and psychotherapy experts as they focused on the continuing impact of cutting-edge science. All previous Creating Connections conferences have been held in Efteling, the Netherlands, since their inception in 2011.
The practice of psychotherapy is undergoing a revolution because of the latest research showing the ways people are wired for relationships and how they can employ innate tools for managing those relationships. The researchers and scientists at Creating Connections 2016 helped attendees and viewers develop their own framework and techniques for applying this science in their work with adults, couples, children, and families.
