This workshop integrates the growing body of research on attachment-based therapies, specifically E.F.T., into work with addiction intervention, treatment and recovery. These issues show up at higher frequency in our most difficult cases: the couple on the brink of divorce, the young adult in a drug treatment facility, or the adult client with complex multiple issues. The attachment lens provides a common thread to understand these difficult issues in our work.  E.F.T. helps us make sense of why trauma and adverse childhood experiences are so prevalent in our couples and families we serve. We will explore ways we can show-up as therapists to best help clients, couples and families.  And how integrating the attachment lens and E.F.T. treatment model in our work and programming benefits our clients and families.  We will explore the commonality between addiction and relational trauma histories in treatment. In doing so, participants will learn:  

1.      Attachment Theory related particularly to addiction and trauma as relevant to our programs.

2.      The Process of Emotionally Focused Therapy and what it adds to our toolbox. 

3.      Assessment and Alliance Building from an attachment-focused E.F.T. perspective. 

4.      Learn the Major Interventions and Key Change Events using E.F.T. for Couples and Families. 

5.      Approaching emotion, distress and emotional regulation in ground breaking clinical ways. 

6.      Understanding and addressing trauma, relational injuries and plethora of adverse childhood experiences common to treatment program populations in affirmative, healing ways.   

 

*Registration is open to; Masters-Level Counselors, Alcohol and Drug Counselors, Case Managers, Marriage and Family Therapists, Nurse Practitioners, Psychologists, Social Workers Practicing in Addiction Treatment Setting

Attachment Implications in the Treatment of Addiction & Trauma

This workshop integrates the growing body of research on attachment-based therapies, specifically E.F.T., into work with three of the most pernicious, difficult presenting problems in couples (and individual therapy). These issues show up at higher frequency in our most difficult cases and with at-risk populations. The couple on the brink of divorce, the young adult in a drug treatment facility, or the adult client with multiple issues often have experienced one or more of these. The attachment lens provides a common thread to understand addiction, betrayal and relational trauma in our work.  It also suggests ways we need to show up as therapists to best help clients, couples and families impacted by these issues.  We explore the commonality between addiction, affairs and relational trauma histories in couples therapy. In doing so, participants will learn:

1) How an attachment-lens changes engagement in couples therapy with couples facing any of these presenting problems.
2) Ways to integrate the attachment-lens early in treatment using attachment-friendly models such as Emotionally Focused Therapy.
3) Why the attachment-frame builds hope and reframes these core issues into opportunities for couples and families.  
4) How it may guide how we show up as therapists in the therapy relationship.
