Modern Attachment: Bridging the Science to Real Life

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

In this session, you’ll receive an update and new perspective on the contemporary application of the relational sciences – attachment, neuroscience and trauma.  In addition, you’ll get exciting new tools to make it practical to apply in session and in real life. We will push the conception of “attachment,” moving beyond the traditional use of research categories and add the concept of an attachment spectrum. These ideas will add dynamic nuance when it comes to unconscious patterns of relating.  We will deep-dive into each of the attachment leanings with an eye toward the most effective clinical work to make the education and experience most meaningful to you.

But that’s not all…

Panel on relational “security” in marginalized groups

Building security isn’t just an internal mental process – it goes beyond one-on-one relationships. To look at structures that create insecurity, we will have a live conversation with a panel of BIPOC therapistsDr. Marlon Johnson, Vanessa Newton and Shayla Wilson, to expand our conceptions of what attachment security looks like for marginalized communities. (We hope to facilitate more opportunities to go in-depth with this at a later time!)

Professionally facilitated break-out groups

We will help you ground the learning and explore the material – including your own relational defensive patterns – so that it doesn’t stay just an intellectual exercise.


Lunch is included in your ticket and is another opportunity to build connections.

Trauma-informed strength movement, led by a holistic professional personal trainer, or Guided mindfulness practice led by a mindfulness-based practitioner.

7 CEUs included – Ethics (3 hours) and Cultural (2 hrs)
