The Adult Attachment Interview 2021-10-09


In this workshop I teach The Adult Attachment Interview (c) by Mary Main, Ph.D. Part 3 explores working relationally with individuals and couples and provides real time methods to bring the healing power of therapy into the room. Parts 4 and Part 5 deal with the complexities of treating addictions and navigating the addiction system.  My approach is practical, based on my 25 years of experience and study. It is always my goal to teach useful interventions you can bring to your practice immediately. You won’t be disappointed!
