attachment-a805-theory-in-actionDiscover how to use the basics of Attachment Theory in your practice to change the way you interact with clients and improve outcomes.

Despite the essential insights Attachment Theory offers into early psychological development, therapists are rarely taught how to integrate its principles in their day-to-day practice. In this course, we’ll focus on how attachment theory can be incorporated into clinical practice to the bond with clients.

What's Covered in A805 Attachment Theory In Action:

  • How therapists’ use of language, posture, emotional mirroring, and emotionally rich questions can help clients regulate their own emotions, reflect on their actions and life experiences, and enter more fully into the therapeutic relationship.
