Although Attachment Theory is widely accepted for its insights into early psychological development, therapists are rarely taught how to bring these insights into their day-to-day practice. In this new webcast series, you’ll learn practical methods for applying the attachment perspective in your clinical work. You’ll discover how to better use your physical presence, language, tone of voice, eye contact and facial expressions to deepen the connection clients experience in the consulting room and enhance their capacity for more satisfying relationships.
