A one day workshop with Linda Cundy
People who are anxiously attached feel chronically insecure and their relationships tend to be intense, often angry, and enmeshed. In therapy they can appear needy, demanding and resistant to change. They are sometimes referred to as ‘borderline borderline’. Many practitioners find ‘preoccupied’ clients difficult to work with, and these therapies either feel stuck or end badly.
This training day aims to increase understanding of – and empathy for – these ‘difficult’ clients from an attachment perspective. It will identify specific problems that often arise in therapy and propose a therapeutic model that enables the development of a sense of security and transformational long-term change.
This SWACP workshop includes refreshments on arrival and during breaks. A buffet style lunch with vegetarian options will also be provided.
We are unfortunately unable to cater for specific dietry needs so if you have special dietry requirements, please make your own arrangements.
