Engaging Traumatized Clients who Avoid Attachment, Closeness & Painful Feelings

A 2-day training workshop at London with Dr Robert T. Muller

London, 27 & 28 October 2017, Friday & Saturday

Note: workshop registrations include a complimentary copy of Dr Muller’s award-winning book: ‘Trauma & the Avoidant Client’ (winner of the 2011 ISSTD award for the year’s best written work on Trauma)

This practical workshop, led by Dr Robert T. Muller – a leading expert on therapy for Trauma and globally acclaimed author of the psychotherapy bestseller: ‘Trauma & the Avoidant Client, Attachment-Based Strategies for Healing’ – is aimed at building our therapeutic understanding of clinical work with avoidant clients.

While there has been considerable research into treatment of trauma, surprisingly little work has focused on specific intervention strategies to help traumatised clients who are avoidant of attachment.  Many clients cope with traumatic intra-familial experiences by minimising painful feelings, by becoming emotionally distant, and by devaluing interpersonal closeness, intimacy and feelings of vulnerability.  With individuals who adopt a self-protective help-rejecting stance, psychotherapy can prove extremely challenging for client and therapist alike.

Drawing upon attachment theory and research, and upon a wealth of clinical experience, Dr Muller explains how, as psychotherapists, psychologists, counsellors and psychiatrists, we can work with such hard-to-treat clients, how we can find points of entry and ways in which we can make contact.  Using a relational, psychodynamic approach, the workshop discusses and demonstrates strategies for developing the therapeutic relationship, such that we can assist the client regain a sense of trust in others. We explore therapeutic techniques through which the client is encouraged to take interpersonal risks, to mourn losses, and to face vulnerabilities. Uniquely, Dr Muller illustrates how the frustrating challenges that arise in the therapeutic relationship can in fact be used as a productive force in the therapeutic process.

Throughout the workshop, Theory is complemented by case examples and segments from Dr Muller’s own therapeutic sessions. The workshop focusses on clinical skills that are directly applicable in our work as therapists.
