This course will focus on working with adults and children that have experienced attachment trauma. We will focus on how to approach work and healing with people attachment issues with a trauma informed approach. We will fully explain how attachment is formed from a neuro scientific perspective. Participants will discover how the interaction between the internal wiring in the brain, the first relationship, and the environment set the grounds for attachment relationship. The training will explore the ACES and attachment-based work that supports clients in healing attachment wounds.
