Clinical Forums

Clinical Forum – The Need for Something more than a Secure Base; is a Secure Base always enough for a Therapeutic Relationship?

Synopsis: In this forum Michaela will be presenting a paper exploring what Bowlby’s concept of a Secure Base means theoretically and clinically. Using clinical examples Michaela will be asking if the Secure Base is always enough and can it always be used.

Through using both Bowlby and Winnicott’s concepts of infant development, the paper is an exploration of what might be at risk for both analysand and therapist when a secure base cannot be used and perhaps the greater risk of when it can.
