Event Description

Child maltreatment can profoundly influence human development, resulting in a variety of mental, emotional, and social challenges – including addictive disorders. Attachment theory is a useful framework for understanding how early relational experiences can have such far-reaching effects. Insecure attachment styles, such as attachment-related avoidance and anxiety (i.e., love avoidance and love addiction), are associated with suboptimal patterns of expressing and regulating emotions. In turn, attachment insecurity and emotion dysregulation are related to addictive behavior. The practice of mindfulness and compassion can be an antidote to these unhealthy patterns and can foster emotional self-regulation, greater capacity for intimacy and a general sense of well-being.
