Attachment Wounds – 27 June 2018

Attachment Wounds: When Frustration Turns to Aggression or Depression.

New Insights for the Treatment of Depression: An integrated Frustration-Aggression-Depression Model with insights from Attachment theory
Ezra Institute at Morling College Sydney Australia
One Day Workshop – 27 June 2018, 9:30am– 4:30pm


The conceptualisation of depression sets the trajectory for treatment plans for practitioners. If too narrow an understanding of depression is held, a limited scope of treatment is often all the counsellor can offer.
This workshop offers a reconceptualization of depression by presenting an integrated treatment model of the historic work of Dollard and Millar’s (1939, 1941) Frustration-Aggression hypothesis with the current work of Developmental Psychologist Gordon Neufeld, offering insights from Attachment Theory and Depth Psychology.


The integrated model examines:
– attachment frustration as an existential root cause underlying many depressive and aggressive symptoms.
– Case-studies and a working model will be offered in this presentation.


This workshop is for psychologists, counsellors, social workers and students who wish to improve their knowledge and skills in the treatment of depression.
