Event Description

Recent years have seen advances in the treatment of intra-familial trauma. Yet surprisingly little has focused on specific intervention strategies to help the traumatize individual who is avoidant of attachment.

Many of our clients cope with traumatic attachment experiences by minimizing painful feelings, by becoming emotionally distant, and by devaluing interpersonal closeness, intimacy, and feelings of vulnerability. With individuals who adopt a self-protective, help-rejecting stance, psychotherapy can prove very challenging for client and therapist alike.
