In Search of the Breakthrough

Bruce Ecker on finding the underlying reasons for detrimental behaviors

The therapeutic breakthrough—it’s a moment that leads to deep, lasting change for a client. But is there an identifiable process that leads to breakthrough?

Bruce Ecker, co-director of the Coherence Psychology Institute, says “Yes.”

Using a process focused on understanding memory reconsolidation, he has found a way to identify attachment-based issues, and help clients change dysfunctional behaviors with roots in the past.

In a recent conversation with Bruce—part of our upcoming web series on putting attachment theory into practice—he talks about a client unwilling to leave an abusive situation and the approach he uses to uncover the underlying reasons why.

Take a few minutes to watch this clip from the conversation and I think you’ll find it enlightening.

Bruce Ecker is one of six therapeutic leaders featured in our upcoming video webcast series: Attachment Theory in Action. The series offers a look at the specific attachment-based methods used by Diane Poole Heller, Susan Johnson, Daniel Hughes, Maggie Phillips, and David Feinstein in their professional practices.
