Learning Outcomes
  • Describe the relationship between early attachment or trauma and alienation from self.
  • Recognize signs of disowned parts and their internal conflicts in clients.
  • Identify parts that sabotage self-compassion or self-acceptance.
  • Describe interventions that create an increased somatic sense of connection or attachment to the body or the parts.
  • Capitalize on interpersonal neurobiology to increase the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions.
  • Foster ‘earned secure attachment’ as the outcome of attachment bonding between adult and child selves.
Course Breakdown:

Part 1:

The first part of the course is made up of four short videos. You will learn that alienation from the self is a survival strategy taken on by children who are exposed to abusive or dysfunctional parenting. It allows a child to maintain their attachment to their caregiver by branding themself as “bad” or “unlovable” so they can continue to see their caregiver as “good”. This deeply painful failure of self-acceptance results in shame, self-loathing, difficulty in self-soothing and complicated relationships with others which can be lifelong. To overcome this, therapy must focus on cultivating the client’s ability to use mindful observation. In this workshop you will look at using structural dissociation theory, sensorimotor psychotherapy, and internal family systems to explore the therapeutic power of fostering internal secure attachments to clients most deeply disowned selves. You will watch clinical examples to put your learnings into context.

Part 2:

In this part of the course, which is again made up of 4 short videos, you will delve deeper into the role of the therapist in guiding your clients to repair internal attachments. You will be introduced to the concept of blending (Schwartz 2001) and how to help your clients to ‘un-blend’ certain parts of themselves. You will learn a number of different therapeutic techniques and watch clinical examples of them in practice.
