Adults with secure attachments and healthy adult relationships usually had early experiences of consistent nurturing and care from parents or caregivers. Adults with insecure attachments and unhealthy relationships, on the other hand, usually had early experiences of inconsistent nurturing, rejection or even severe neglect and abuse. The good news is that adults with insecure attachments can redevelop their capacity for secure attachments by understanding the impact of early childhood experiences on their personality development and present relationships, mourning the losses and longings from these early child/parent relationships and developing a non-judgmental stance in exploring their patterns.   This workshop will present a model of therapy and interventions for helping professionals to assist clients recognize their unconscious models of relationships, to develop greater security through the therapeutic relationship and to risk new and healthy interactive patterns in present relationships. Attendees will also develop awareness of their own attachment style and its importance in their therapeutic work with clients.   Participants will learn: how to assess adult attachment using the Adult Attachment Interview and Behavioural Determinants; the neurobiology of adult attachment; the connection between mental health disorders and attachment categories; goals and stages of attachment focused counselling; and treatment interventions for each of the adult attachment categories.
