Working with Relational Trauma

A training day for people who work with people who have been hurt by people. A day about our intrinsic value as human beings, and how our experiences of relationships shape us—for ill or for good. This day will look in-depth at attachment theory and how the brain develops based on the thousands of tiny interactions between a baby and its primary caregiver. As a result of these interactions, attachment ‘styles’ develop which continue to play out throughout life and in all of our adult relationships. These attachment ‘styles’ – including ‘disorganised’, which is highly correlated to both dissociative disorders and borderline personality disorder – revolve around the expression or suppression of emotion in order stay connected in relationships. This training day will look at how this develops, and the role that psychotherapy can play in developing ‘earned’ secure attachment through affect regulation and mentalising. For more information see the Working with Relational Trauma overview page.
