Attachment Theory and research have provided us with ways of thinking about human nature, human distress and psychopathology. More than fifty per cent of the general population have insecure patterns of attachment, and the vast majority of our clients and patients struggle with the legacy of early anxieties. A history of insecure attachment affects how we perceive the world, how we relate to other people and the relationship we develop with ourselves. It also informs how we present in psychotherapy or counselling.

This one-day workshop will consider what this means for therapeutic practice, focusing on assessment, identifying attachment style, understanding defences, therapeutic boundaries, transference and countertransference issues and the overall aims of therapy. The impact of the therapist’s attachment style will also be acknowledged.

This workshop is aimed at practitioners from all modalities working with adults and adolescents in private practice or other settings. In particular it will address the needs of those clients who are neither psychotic nor ‘borderline’ but whose distress is expressed in more ‘neurotic’ symptoms, and who are therefore more easily overlooked.
