Becoming an adult attachment-focused therapist

Annette Kussin, MSW, RSW
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

Live webinar
February 22, 2024| 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET
Annette Kussin, MSW, RSW, RMFT

The theory of attachment clearly describes attachment as a lifelong phenomenon. For adults, early attachment experiences continue to impact adult relationships and self-perception. However, most therapy for adults don’t incorporate an understanding of attachment and therapeutic interventions based on attachment principles.

This training will teach you the categories of adult attachment and how to assist your adult clients to progress from being insecurely attached adults to securely attached adults. This training will present a model of therapy that will shift your theoretical framework to attachment-focused therapy. This model will help you assess adult attachment categories, recognize the impact of early childhood attachment experiences on the personality development of your clients, guide your clients through the process of understanding their adult attachment, mourn their losses and longings, and risk change to develop secure/autonomous adult attachments.

As a therapist, you will develop awareness of your own attachment style and its importance in the reparative process of therapy.

Learning objectives:

• Recognize adult attachment categories
• Assess adult attachment using patterns of behaviour and a modified form of the adult attachment interview
• Use attachment as a paradigm for understanding mental health diagnoses
• Recognize the adult brain and attachment
• Use the model of attachment-focused therapy for adults
• Make attachment the paradigm for therapeutic change

Participants will have the option to purchase Annette Kussin’s book, It’s Attachment: A New Way of Understanding Yourself and Your Relationships (2020) for a discounted price!
