Attachment as a Relational Construct

 

A One Day Workshop at London with Dr Ruth Schmidt Neven

 

London, 6 October 2017, Friday

 

Designed to be of practical value to psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists and family mental health practitioners, this workshop by Dr Ruth Schmidt Neven takes a unique look at Attachment – linking it to developmental stages throughout the life cycle of our clients and identifying how therapists can have a positive impact on cognitive processes. The workshop helps us comprehend how attachment as a relational construct expands over the lifespan and provides continuity between early childhood experiences, later development and adult life. The workshop starts by recognising that all behaviour has meaning, and is a communication. Within this context, positive infant-parent relationships have a transforming function that create the potential for mutuality, reciprocity and shared meaning, and thereby provide a continuing protective system through to adulthood.

 

The absence of a ‘secure base’ and an ‘internal working model’ has an impact on:

 

  • how children ‘speak’ their family through their behaviour, and
  • how adults ‘speak’ their childhoods in the consulting room

 

The workshop looks closely at the therapeutic challenges we face as practitioners when there is a breakdown in the attachment process. How do we link this and therapeutically address cognitive functioning, brain development and the perpetuation of trauma for the developing child?

 

Through illustrative case vignettes, a video presentation and examples from her clinical work in UK & Australia, Dr Ruth Schmidt Neven helps both new practitioners and those with many years of experience to view Attachment in a relational and developmental perspective, bringing to life the opportunities we have in our therapeutic interactions.
