Embodied Attachment Introduction: Portland, Maine

Transform Stuck Patterns into Life Affirming Connections

If I’m wired to connect how come I still feel empty and alone?

One of the main reasons post-traumatic stress disorder doesn’t resolve is due to the underlying, unresolved attachment issues. Our bodies, minds, and hearts are wired to connect. When connection(s) are broken, or betrayed, especially while growing up the internal patterns become disorganized, remaining that way despite how one appears externally.

Research indicates that one in four people has a secure attachment style (Brown, Elliott, et al, 2016). Which means that the rest, three out of four, have insecure attachment styles. While that sounds daunting the good news is attachment patterns can be changed. To do this we need to not only have cognitive understanding of attachment patterns but more importantly, know how to deal with the non-narrative imprinting that happens before the brain is fully formed.

This experiential workshop will be designed to give you the attachment theory in an easy to understand way. More importantly you’ll learn strategies and practices to use with your clients the day you return to work.
