Attachment in Psychotherapy
“If you transpose a lot of what the relational, intersubjective theorists have to say about how the therapy process works to the developmental context provided by attachment theory, you’ve got an extraordinarily rich framework for guiding your interventions in psychotherapy.” ~David Wallin
Parent-child attachment research offers a scientific basis for understanding suffering, but also the healing and growth we clinicians hope to facilitate. In this lecture, Dr. Wallin will deliver the basics of attachment theory’s implications for psychotherapy. How are we real with one another? What are our approaches to working with our patients in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis? What are our patterns of attachment?
