About the workshop
Our counselling work with clients often involves working with a wide range of emotions, varying from muted to very strong emotional reactions. In the attachment we form with our clients, the research has shown that the more securely attached the client is with the therapist, the greater their capacity to regulate their emotions, which otherwise would have been too overwhelming for them to cope with on their own.
In this workshop emotion regulation in the client-therapist dyad will be explored in light of early attachment dynamics. Firstly, the neuroscience of attachment from a developmental and therapeutic perspective will be presented. An explanation of how healthy attachment develops throughout the lifespan will be given, as well as insights from the field of neuroscience. A case study of a child with complex developmental trauma will be presented. Secondly, Gordon Neufeld’s 5 step model of working with emotions will be outlined. From these insights, a case study of applying this model to working with adults will be given to illustrate the application of this knowledge to clinical practice.
This workshop is intended for Psychologists, Counsellors, Social Workers, Family Therapists, Special Needs teachers and RTLBs and anyone working with clients who struggle with emotional regulation.
