Part 1 – Attachment Theory: The Basics
Watch an interactive introduction to the most important psychological idea of recent years: attachment theory. We explore why the pioneering work of John Bowlby on attachment matters to all of us – in our friendships; our romantic relationships; in our roles as parents and carers; in our work; and what helps to change insecure attachment styles.
We answer questions like:
– How do trauma and neglect shape our brains and nervous systems?
– Why do some of us retreat from intimacy, while some of us cannot stand being alone?
– How should we best try to care for our children to help them grow up to be secure adults?
– What can we do if we find relationships difficult?
This recorded workshop is aimed at those in the caring professions but is also be accessible and enjoyable for the complete beginner. For practitioners, this event will be 1.5 hours of CPD. For those interested in exploring attachment theory in greater detail, the workshop forms the first in a short series of four interactive online seminars on attachment theory run by The Bowlby Centre which will add up to a Certificate in Attachment Theory once all four workshops are completed. All the workshops will be available to buy separately if you are unable to attend the live events.
This recorded workshop costs £40.
