Description

In this course we will examine the underlying dynamics behind anxiety, building on Gordon Neufeld’s Attachment-based developmental approach. It is for those who want to further develop their understanding of Attachment Theory by looking at it through the lens of how Attachment-informed approaches can calm anxiety and reduce stress in your clients. It will be a deeper dive into the foundations that were laid out in The Power of Connections 1 with clinical application to working with anxious/alarmed clients.

 

This involves exploring client’s unmet attachment needs, processing earlier attachment traumas and understanding the neuroscience of alarm/anxiety/rest. We will also gain insights into how alarm impacts the body at multiple levels. For example, in the endocrine, hormonal and biochemical systems, we will unpack how the stress hormones (cortisol and adrenalin) can be an asset or a liability: what it means to down-regulate fear/anxious arousal and upregulate pleasant emotions like joy, excitement and playfulness.

The work of trauma theorists (Schore, Porges, Levine) as well as interpersonal neurobiologist, Seigel, will be integrated into the Neufeld material to provide a holistic approach to dealing with anxiety in our clients.

Who is this course for?

Counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists, anyone working in mental health who wants to understand the dynamics of alarm/anxiety in client’s lives and how to bring them to a place of rest and thriving.
