The Attachment Theory Base of the Integrative Approach

ID: 5242

Attachment theory provides therapists with a vital perspective on the workings of two-person relationships. Using attachment theory as a lens for understanding bonding and intimacy, this workshop will introduce participants to secure and insecure attachment styles, and to how these can be observed and addressed in couples therapy. Skills for encouraging secure bonding interactions, including constructive emotional expression and the sharing of vulnerability, will be introduced and rehearsed. Attention will be given to addressing negative cycles of anger and blame, and to identifying the attachment injuries which underlie them. Lectures, group discussion, role play, and group exercises will be employed.

The Relational Base of the Integrative Approach

ID: 5243

A basic goal of couples therapy is to help therapists foster a couples ability to think about their experience in a relational and bidirectional perspective as opposed to the perspective of two separate individuals caught in a blaming cycle in which one partner is the villain and the other is the victim. Through restructuring the couples interaction in the room, the therapist helps the couple recognize the relational dramas they re-enact over and over again with each other helping them to become more flexible, compassionate, and intimate in the relationship. The therapist must be an active participant in co-creating safety, reducing threat, and engendering self and relational reflectiveness. This workshop will address the important concepts and interventions in this approach through lecture and practice-oriented exercises.
