    SBCAMFT & Antioch University Proudly Present:

    Developing Secure Attachment: Making Sense of Your Past to Empower Your Future presented by Dr. Lisa Firestone

    Lisa Firestone, Ph.D. is the Director of Research and Education at The Glendon Association and Senior Editor for the mental health website PsychAlive.org. She is the author of several books including Conquer Your Critical Inner VoiceCreating a Life of Meaning and Compassion and, most recently, The Self under Siege. Dr. Firestone has been involved in clinical trainings and applied research in the areas of suicide and violence. She is a national and international presenter on the topics of suicide and violence as well as couple relationships and parenting.

    This presentation will introduce tools for you to dig deep and resolve old traumas, big and small, so that they no longer haunt you and provide strategies to apply these tools with your clients. This workshop will draw upon the latest attachment research and outline the process of writing a coherent narrative. Research in neurobiology shows that when a person writes a coherent narrative they actually rewire their brain to feel more secure within themselves and their relationships. In addition, creating a coherent narrative contributes to developing earned secure attachment.

    Presentation learning objectives:
    1. Explain how child attachment patterns continue to affect people throughout their lives.
    2. Describe, using cutting edge neurobiological research, how clients can rewire their brains to feel more secure.
    3. Discuss how a patient through process of psychotherapy, can develop an earned secure attachment in adulthood.
    4. Access step by step guidelines for how to help clients develop a coherent narrative for their life.
