Mind-Body Approaches for Healing Traumatic Attachment

Janina Fisher

1.5 CE Hours** / Level: All

The effects of traumatic attachment are the most frequent complication in treating trauma. Rather than experiencing others as a haven of safety, traumatized clients are driven by powerful wishes and fears of relationship. Even the presence of the therapist may be triggering and autonomically dysregulating. Although our methods, such as EMDR, Thought Field Therapy, and Emotional Freedom Techniques, are very effective approaches to treating trauma, their use can be undermined by fears.

We will explore how the destabilizing effects of therapy and therapists for clients with traumatic attachment issues can be addressed by integrating somatic and mindfulness-based approaches into treatment.

  • Describe the long-term effects of traumatic attachment in childhood.
  • Describe coregulation techniques that can be integrated into EMDR and energy therapy treatments.

Has the Paradigm Shifted Yet?
