3 Days Explore the Dynamics of Attachment in Adult Life

October 3rd to 5th - 18 hours

Porto Portugal

€400 IASW members/€400 non-members

What is this course about?

This course offers an opportunity for professional caregivers to explore one's own experience of attachment dynamics in the context of a confidential closed experiential group. This course seeks to address the fact that as we work in jobs which require us to respond to the needs of others, too often we don't create the conditions to support our own personal and psychological development. Experiences of careseeking and caregiving have their roots in infancy and shape our expectations and responses to careseeking and caregiving in adult life. When in our work we offer a service within a relationship, we will be aware of how often it is difficult to be an effective and stress-free professional, resulting in a myriad of negative feelings like frustration or exhaustion, sometimes too close to burnout.

Who should attend training?

For all who see themselves as caregivers in their work, like health professionals, leaders, coaches, teachers; or when caregiving is the key in the development of the person and of the relationship, like in parenting or other formal or informal caregivers. How much caregiving do you have for yourself? What is the impact of early attachment relationships have in your present life and profession roles? How much fear is present in your daily life? Would you be interested to explore this issues deeply in a close confidential group and get a better understand of what and how to transform different patrons in the attachment systems?  
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

What can participants expect?

  • The essentials from the Theory of Attachment based Exploratory Interest Sharing and the seven systems described by the authors
  • The McCluskey concept of Goal-Corrected Empathic Attunement and its effectiveness within the caregiving careseeking relationship
  • To develop the inner process of attunement with one’s self and its impact on the dynamics of the attachment systems
  • To explore their own early experiences of attachment to have a better understanding of their impact on (in)effectiveness as caregivers
  • To be more aware of the activation of the fear system and became better in identifying ways to develop as a fear-free caregiver
  • To be able to express their learnings related with their own self and inner process within the theoretical framework given, and how those learnings apply at work or in other caregiving roles.
  • To understand and put into practice how to develop effectiveness and wellbeing at work as caregivers using the dynamics of the seven systems

Content Presentation of the Theory of Attachment based Exploratory Interest Sharing (T.A.B.E.I.S.). In Heard, Lake and McCluskey’s model of a dynamic self, the self is distinct and becomes a person when interacting with others, and moving between states of subjectivity and intersubjectivity. Attachment theory contributes to the dynamics of caregiving-careseeking in early stages, and the feelings of being secure or insecure with one’s closest caregivers. The authors state the huge impact of those relationships in adult life. T.A.B.E.I.S. adds five other systems, where interest sharing is crucial. The adult self functions within these seven different systems:

  1. 1. Careseeking       
  2. 2. Caregiving       
  3. 3. Self defence         
  4. 4. Affectional sexuality               
  5. 5. Interest sharing           
  6. 6. Internal environment     
  7. 7. External environment

Each of the seven systems will be addressed during the course, always beginning with a brief presentation from the facilitator before the experiential time for the participants.
