Certificate in attachment-focused adult psychotherapy: Advanced course

Presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

Dates: November 29, 30, December 6 and 7, 2022
Time: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET
Facilitator: Annette Kussin, MSW, RSW
Prerequisite: Becoming an adult attachment-focused therapist OR equivalent training/knowledge on adult attachment

Description: All therapists will find it extremely useful to understand their clients from the perspective of adult attachment. This perspective offers a non-judgmental and hopeful means for both the therapist and clients to understand problems in self-perception and problems in relationships. Adult attachments develop as a continuum of child attachment. However, these can be changed so that adults can feel more secure and create mutually satisfying relationships.

This training will help participants assess the adult attachment category of their clients. By understanding the behavior of each category and by offering a formal adult attachment assessment. Participants will gain an attachment-focused therapeutic model that offers both general stages for change and specific strategies for each attachment category. They will explore this model in depth through the use of case examples from each category of attachment.

Participants will develop an understanding of the neurology of adult attachment. They will be able to apply an attachment paradigm to known problems and diagnoses in the mental health field.

The relationship between the therapist and client is the central vehicle for change. Therefore, participants must be aware of their own attachment category and how this influences their therapeutic relationships.

Participants will complete this course with a deeper understanding of secure and insecure adult attachment and how to use this understanding to assist their clients to redevelop secure adult attachment or earned security.
