This event is divided into 4 parts

Find out the details of each part

First Part


Alienation from self in the context of abusive or dysfunctio-nal parenting is a survival strategy that maintains children’s attachment to caregivers by disowning themselves as “bad” or “unlovable.” This deeply painful failure of self acceptance results in lifelong shame and self loathing, difficulty self soothing, and complications in relationships with others. Without internal compassion and a sense of worth, it is difficult to take in the compassion and acceptance of others. To overcome this alienation from self, therapy must focus on cultivating clients’ mindful observation of signs of their disowned selves and disowned experience. As clients discover their trauma related, structurally dissociated younger selves and bring them “home,” they spontaneously begin to feel an internal sense of warmth and safety that changes their internal experience. In this workshop, using strategies inspired by Structural Dissociation theory, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems, we will explore the therapeutic power of fostering internal secure attach-ment to clients’ most deeply disowned selves.

Second Part

Traumatic Attachment and Co-regulation: The Neurobiology of Relationship (Workshop November 2019)

In the context of fear, attachment failure is inevitable, leaving behind a lasting imprint on all future relationships. Rather than experiencing closeness as a haven of safety, traumatized clients are driven by powerful wishes and fears of relationship.

In this presentation, we will address the impact of traumatic attachment on affect regulation, exploring how to understand the effects of trauma on attachment from a psychobiological perspective, and how to work with the somatic legacy of attachment

Using interventions drawn from neuroscience and attachment research and from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a body-centered talking therapy for the treatment of trauma and affect dysregulation, this workshop will present a neurobiologically-informed understanding of the impact of trauma on attachment behavior and describe how to use “co-regulation” rather than interpretation to help our clients tolerate their emotional and autonomic distress. Co-regulation is not dependent on words: it is a relational exchange of emotional and somatic communication in which every adjustment in bodily or affective state in one participant helps to calm, soothe, regulate or dysregulate the other.

When we “co-regulate” our clients, they often experience a safety in relationship they may never have felt before.

Third Part

Making Virtual Psychotherapy a Relational Experience (Three webinar series Autumn 2020)

In a climate of fear and isolation that affects us all, therapists are now being asked to help clients deal with the practical and emotional challenges caused by the COVID epidemic—at a distance. At a difficult time, virtual psychotherapy can be stressful for the therapist and the client. Often, both are overwhelmed by the technical challenges of working online, dysregulated by the stress they face at home, and feeling the need for more relationship, not less.

Without the connection that clients and therapists value as the heart and soul of psychotherapy, virtual sessions can feel distant and impersonal. Adding to the stress, many of our clients have histories of abuse, failed attachment, neglect, and failed trust that increase their sensitivity to distance and abandonment. Therapists, wanting to support them, can feel helpless and ineffective or even guilty. Just when they need us the most, we are “not there.”

But virtual psychotherapy does not have to be impersonal!

This webinar series addresses how to overcome the limitations of telehealth technology to make remote psychotherapy a warm and relational experience. This webinar will offer:

  • Ways of understanding the sense of abandonment experienced by clients in online work
  • How to use virtual psychotherapy to increase the client’s sense of object constancy
  • Practical tips for making online therapy feel personal and connected
  • Resources for helping clients tolerate isolation and loneliness
  • How to use the therapeutic relationship to regulate the client’s nervous system

Session I:
Clients and therapists share the belief that relationship and connection require in-person contact, but that perspective is not helpful in a world where the coronavirus requires social distancing. The inability to feel emotionally connected in a virtual space is rooted in the failure of object constancy in early attachment relationships, not caused by online teletherapy.

Object constancy allows us to internalize those closest to us and trust that they care even at a distance or when there is a change in emotional state. Instead of focusing on the loss and disappointment, we can use this difficult situation to help our clients develop greater object constancy.

Session II:
The coronavirus epidemic created a traumatic environment throughout the world. Rather than using psychotherapy to help individuals overcome their past experiences of trauma, loss, and failed attachments, therapists now have to help clients with the present-day ongoing experience of traumatic threat: the threat to themselves and threat to their families. In this period of time, our clients are facing threats every day just as they would in a time of war. How does the therapist help clients with the danger and loss they face moment to moment right now?

Session III:
More than face-to-face therapy, virtual psychotherapy requires the therapist to be more obviously present, more expressive, warmer and more connected. Therapists are used to communicating their understanding and attunement non-verbally, but in an online therapy, very subtle communications of support are often not felt by the client. Instead, the client feels very alone even in the therapy session. In this last module of the course, we will address how the therapist can make use of energy level, breathing, gesture, and social engagement to create a felt sense of connection even over the internet.

Learning objectives:
- Identify the challenges for clients and therapists of virtual psychotherapy
- Articulate 3 ways of decreasing technophobia
- Evaluate the impact of threat on the autonomic nervous system
- Identify interventions for regulating autonomic dysregulation
- Describe techniques that increase tolerance for fear and stress
- Define the ‘social engagement system’
- Describe uses of social engagement for telehealth

Fourth Part

Healing Traumatic Wounds: A Brief Therapy Model For The Treatment Of Trauma

Neuroscience research has conclusively established that trauma results in a ‘living legacy’ of enduring nonverbal effects rather than a coherent narrative. Long after an event is over, the survival responses meant to warn us of impending danger remain easily re-activated, evoking emotional and body memories. Treatment methods focused on the traumatic events can prolong treatment by stimulating these symptoms, leaving therapists who work in short-term therapy settings feeling frustrated with their ability to help traumatized individuals, especially when their clients are suicidal and self-destructive. The evolution of new neurobiologically-informed treatments offers new, hopeful answers to the aftermath of trauma, and, more importantly, these approaches can be adapted to a short-term model of therapy. Rather than ‘treating’ the events that resulted in this legacy, neuroscience teaches us how to treat their effects. The neurobiological logic of this way of working with trauma reassures survivors that they are not inadequate or crazy and reassures the therapist that the effects of traumatic experiences can be safely addressed even using a brief therapy paradigm.
