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

May 17, 18, June 1 and 2, 2021

Gain an advanced level of assessing and treating adults from an attachment-focused model of psychotherapy. Learn to assess the adult attachment category of clients by understanding the behavior of each category and by offering a formal adult attachment assessment.

This training is suitable for: Experienced therapists who have knowledge about child attachment and experience working with adults.

Pre-requisite: The workshop Becoming an Adult Attachment Focused Therapist or other workshops on adult attachment.

Note: This program provides a "Certificate of Participation" and does not certify participants as Certified Adult Attachment Therapists.

Description: Understanding clients from the perspective of adult attachment offers a new and hopeful lens to therapists working with clients with relationship problems and with individual insecurities. Adult attachments develop as a continuum of child attachment and are deeply formed by adulthood. However, they can be changed through a therapeutic relationship so that adults can feel more secure and create mutually satisfying relationships.

This certificate program will provide an advanced level of assessing the adult attachment categories and treating adults from an attachment-focused model of psychotherapy.

Learning objectives:

• Assess the Adult Attachment Category of their clients by understanding the behavior of each category and by offering a formal Adult Attachment assessment.
• Gain an Attachment Focused Therapeutic Model that offers both general stages for change and specific strategies for each Attachment Category. This model will be explored in depth, using case examples from each category of Attachment.
• Develop an understanding of the neurology of Adult Attachment. They will be able to apply an Attachment Paradigm to a number of known problems and diagnosis in the Mental Health Field, such as Borderline Personality Disorder.
• The relationship between the therapist and client is the central vehicle for change. Therefore, participants will be encouraged to be aware of their own Attachment Category and how this influences their therapeutic relationships.
• Participants will complete this course with a deeper understanding of Secure and insecure Adult Attachment and how to use this understanding to assist their clients to redevelop Secure Adult Attachment or Earned Security.
