Attachment in Adults: How Infant Attachment Security Affects Adult Relationships by Onno van der Hart
Over the years, therapists have struggled to help their clients heal from their traumatic experiences. Often using techniques that cover up the symptoms, but never help the client truly heal. Creating a vicious circle of disconnection between the client and therapist.
But TODAY there is hope!
After many studies and in-depth research, the attachment theory is considered one of the best tools in psychotherapy, for it allows you to hone in on your client’s issues and understand what the “next step” is.
“We have a map to the basic emotions, the basic fears, the basic needs, and the basic ways we have of dancing, and these patterns are very predictable, and very reliable, and you can change them in set ways.”
As infants, we learn how to heal and protect ourselves based on the connection with our caretakers. It is well-known that if that caretaker connection is broken, this can predict a pattern of insecure attachment styles. In this recording you will discover the importance of attachment history in your clients and the various attachment styles that can help you tailor the therapeutic techniques to your client.
“I think the attachment system needs much more attention. And again, it’s how do bodies feel safe, how do bodies feel safe by themselves, how do bodies feel safe with other bodies. Is a much more complex issue.”
~Bessel van der Kolk

More information about Medical:
Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease,
typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine has been around for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and
philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science).
While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.
