Treating Attachment Pathology in Adults
Two Day Training in Melbourne: April 1 & 2, 2019
With
Daniel P. Brown, Ph.D

After the success of last year’s evidence based anxiety disorders and psychometric training, and 2016’s Attachment Disorder treatment training with Dan P. Brown Ph. D. we have been able to secure him for another year.

Overview of the workshop
This workshop focuses on state-of-the-art, effective ways to treat insecure attachment pathology in adults, including with personality and dissociative disorder patients.

This workshop will detail the three pillars to this comprehensive treatment: (1) Fostering internalization of positive, stable internal working models for secure attachment using structured ideal parent figure imagery; (2) Facilitating collaborative non-verbal and verbal behaviour; and (3) Fostering a range of specific meta-cognitive skills. Accurate assessment and application of detailed step-by-step protocols specific to each of the three main types of insecure attachment-dismissing, anxious preoccupied, and disorganized attachment, will be fully explored.

Key Learning Objectives:
• Understanding for effective treatment (protocols) for attachment pathology in adults.
• Knowledge of the range of states-of-mind in adult patients with attachment pathology and how to recognise these in patients.
• Accurate assessment of, and application of detailed step-by-step treatment protocols specific to each of the three main types of insecure attachment-dismissing, anxious preoccupied and disorganized attachment.
• How to use various outcome measures including assessing attachment status, coherence of mind, and change in diagnoses.

Treating Acute and Complicated Grief
Two Day Training in Melbourne: March 15 & 16, 2019
With
Daniel P. Brown, Ph.D

Overview of the workshop
The workshop will cover grief associated with bereavement, loss, life change and early development. Bereavement behaviour comprises of two components: Mourning and grief. Mourning is comprised of the cultural mores, beliefs and customs associated with appropriate behaviour displayed in response to death. Grief is more clearly defined as a biological phenomenon that goes beyond the well-being of the individual as well as a stereotyped pattern of psychological and physiological reactions independent of social customs. Failure to process bereavement can cause significant symptoms, including depression.

 

Key Learning Objectives
This workshop will assess different types of grief and mourning and provide clear treatment protocols for each. The workshops will assess historical and current research on grief and its formulation. Assessment/diagnostic tools will be discussed and demonstrated, as well, clearly defined treatment protocols with clear markers for improvement, will be outlined.

Outcomes for the training
• An understanding of the different types of grief and bereavement
• An understanding of their impact on adult psychological functioning
• Clear guidelines for the diagnosis of grief and bereavement
• Protocols for the treatment of the conditions and conceptualisation of grief and loss.
