Therapist Training: Working with Couples Using Attachment Theory: Orange County, CA

Taught by Milan and Kay Yerkovich on July 28, 2017

This course equips Psychologists, MFT’s, LCSW’s and interns to utilize attachment theory as a framework for couple’s therapy. Presenting issues that bring couples into therapy can frequently be dissected to reveal how attachment injuries give rise to the present symptoms.

A review of attachment theory and research contrasts five common injurious attachment styles that block intimacy with secure attachment. Specific therapeutic interventions are demonstrated, giving therapists the tools required to achieve treatment goals.  This course teaches current peer reviewed research in the field of adult attachment and then goes beyond theory to practical application that creates a structure and map for effective couples’ therapy.
