In this one-day CPD event attachment expert Linda Cundy will help us to understand our ‘avoidant’ clients and how best to work therapeutically with this group of people.
“Avoidant” or Dismissing individuals can appear self-sufficient, aloof, and cut off from their emotions. They are often self-controlled and perfectionist, demanding high standards of themselves and other people.
They struggle to make and maintain intimate connections with others, including their therapists. In order to work effectively with these clients, we need to find ways to empathise them and understand their defences.
From the perspective of contemporary attachment theory, this day will focus on assessment, presentation in therapy, and potential pitfalls. It will propose specific aims and areas of focus in our work with clients who can be difficult to engage, to warm to or to hold onto.
