Event description
This is a unique opportunity for participants to learn about Attachment Theory without much distance from it's original source. The facilitator was taught Attachment Theory by John Bowlby's Son; Richard Bowlby. Our Attachment Style influences how we are in friendships, family relationships, intimate relationships and also the therapeutic alliance. The unremembered years of our lives are instrumental in shaping who we and our client's are.
This event will focus on providing insight, awareness and the knowledge required for reparation.
Aims of This Event:


To introduce or revisit John Bowlby’s theory of Attachment and it’s impact on lifelong behaviours and relationships


Explore how differing Attachment Styles might influence the central view of self and how this can influence thoughts, feelings and behaviours in close/intimate relationships


To discuss how core beliefs or life situations can confuse the presentation of the Attachment Style


Demonstrate how the information outlined above can be useful in understanding recurring problems and difficulties in work, family, intimate and social relationships
