The Austin Center for Grief & Loss will be hosting a 6-hour workshop on how attachment patterns influence grief. This workshop will provide invaluable information and training on understanding the process of grief in light of attachment theory principles. Clients’ attachment patterns with the deceased, with their families and in therapeutic relationships will be explored. In addition, clinicians will increase their awareness of their own attachment patterns and how these interact with those of their clients. The relationship that emerges provides opportunity for the client to begin developing more intrapersonal and relational skills that are consistent with secure attachment as they heal in their grief.
This workshop is inspired by grief-focused treatment, the latest theories of attachment, and relational neuroscience. Participants will learn to apply these concepts through case examples, group discussions and experiential activities.
Participants will learn:
