Workshop Description

This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the complex interplay between attachment patterns and personality disorders. The objectives focus on identifying attachment patterns in each personality disorder, utilizing attachment styles to propel clients forward in therapy, and learning techniques to address attachment patterns and pathology effectively. Attachment styles provide nuanced predictions of engagement in and response to treatment. 

During this workshop, we will discuss how the characteristics of insecure attachment laid the groundwork for understanding the attachment-related dynamics in various personality disorders.

The subsequent areas of focus include examining the different personality disorders, including paranoid, schizoid, schizotypal, antisocial, narcissistic, histrionic, borderline, avoidant, dependent, and obsessive-compulsive. Each disorder is briefly discussed, with a reference to Harlow's Monkeys and its relevance to psychopathy and attachment. The overt/grandiose and covert/vulnerable aspects of narcissistic personality disorder will also be addressed.

Understanding these concepts and connections empowers clinicians to utilize the clinical applications of attachment theory such that they can apply them to the moment-to-moment process of psychotherapy sessions.

 

Join us on April 12th and learn: 

  • How the various attachment classifications manifest in psychotherapy with Personality Disorders.

  • Attachment-related processes and how to attend to them during therapy. 

  • How attachment classifications provide a diagnostic tool for case formulation.

  • How to construct an attachment-based case formulation for Personality Disorders.

  • Accurate assessment of in-session attachment markers to detect and attend to ruptures with greater sensitivity.

  • How to identify in-session attachment markers and how they relate to triggers for common countertransference reactions and alliance ruptures.

Learning Objectives 

Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify at least two (2) attachment-related processes and how to attend to them during therapy. 

  2. Discuss how the various attachment classifications manifest in psychotherapy with Personality Disorders.

  3. Create an attachment-based case formulation for Personality Disorders.

  4. Explain how attachment classifications provide a diagnostic tool for case formulation.

  5. Use at least four (4) attachment-based interventions with clients who have a personality disorder.
