Integrative Attachment Family Therapy Training

September 3 @ 12:00 pm - September 24 @ 1:30 pm

September 3rd, 10th, 17th & 24th, 2024
12:00PM ET – 1:30PM ET (US Eastern Standard Time) 

The Integrative Attachment Family Therapy (IAFT) Training Course, developed by family therapy expert and attachment specialist Dafna Lender, is a powerful intervention approach that addresses a wide array of issues that make their way to a therapist’s office: difficult behaviors on the part of the child, such as frequent arguments and tantrums, disobedience, and indifference; and reactive behaviors on the part of the parents, such as yelling, pleading, threatening, and giving up or giving in.

Instead of viewing the child as the problem, IAFT addresses the crux of the issue: a misalignment in the parent-child relationship. In this training course, Dafna walks students through the IAFT framework, providing therapeutic insight and concrete strategies to help families achieve meaningful and lasting change.

Whether you’re a clinician, child welfare worker, educator, or professional working with children in any capacity, this must-have resource will allow you to:

  • Create a strong alliance with parents―the crucial, and often missing, piece of therapeutic work with children
  • Overcome a host of complex, off-putting defenses and dysfunctions that come with working directly with parents
  • Uncover the reasons for the emotional misalignment between parent and child
  • Guide families in looking at the source of the problem rather than at superficial behaviors
  • Enhance children’s attachment security, resiliency, and sense of self
  • With this course, you can truly help families transform into happy and well-functioning environments where children can thrive.

Learn through clinical case analysis, role-playing, and practical exercises you can integrate into your practice and use on your own.

This program is offered at the introductory level. It is suitable for graduate-level learning and accessible to anyone interested in the subject.

In preparation for the training, participants are encouraged to purchase and read the book Integrative Attachment Family Therapy: A Clinical Guide to Heal and Strengthen the Parent-Child Relationship through Play, Co-regulation, and Meaning-Making.
