406 When is Attachment the Issue?

Bruce Ecker

Bruce EckerCritics of attachment theory have raised concerns about therapists becoming too eager to arbitrarily trace every problematic behavior back to some early attachment injury. In this Webcast Session, Bruce Ecker acknowledges that attachment theory can’t address every clinical problem. Join us as he discusses ways to:

  • determine when a client needs attachment-based interventions
  • do experiential retrieval work that lays bare the emotional learnings behind client behaviors
  • apply a three-step process—based on a new neuroscientific understanding of memory reconsolidation—that dissolves symptom-generating emotional learnings


Bruce Ecker, MA, LMFT, is codirector of the Coherence Psychology Institute and coauthor of Unlocking the Emotional Brain: Eliminating Symptoms at Their Roots Using Memory Reconsolidation and Depth Oriented Brief Therapy. Website: http://www.coherencetherapy.org/
