  • 0 P004 New Perspectives on Practice: The Great Attachment DebateP004, Attachment, Session 4, David Schnarch 05.11.2011 12:16
    Thank you, David, for clarifying what was so exciting to learn from you years back. It is difficult, but so necessary, to have faith in the individual's ability to tolerate the anxiety, not depend on us to create the "safety."
    In working recently with people who carry the stigma of BPD, I hope I have learned that promising positive outcomes based on what the therapist is going to do or know is a great way to cause disasters. Thank you for reminding us that "collaboration" must be "confrontational," at least half of the time. That is respectful of the client and the pain he/she has experienced, I think.

    I was lucky enough to view the webinar with my daughter, Kate Degnan, who is a temperament researcher in Nathan Fox's lab at UMCP. This was great in helping me to understand her work -- and for me to see how understanding temperament and environmental/cultural effects can be even more powerful influences on the mothers, fathers, sons and daughters I treat. Thank you so much!
