About This Course
Deepen your sense of security and gain emotional breadth and intelligence by learning how to apply the teachings of relational neuroscience, modern attachment and developmental psychology for you, your clients (if you have them), and those close to you.
This course packs in over 4 hours (!) of professionally-curated content and offers 3.0 CE's to professionals. After introducing the 4 Elements of Adult Attachment Schemas (BAMA) and the Modern Attachment-Regulation Spectrum (MARS), they focus on providing deeper thought and practical answers to the "ok I get it, but what do I do about it now?" question.
This course goes beyond the basics but keeps it practical, easy to understand and entirely self-paced, so you can engage the material at your leisure. You will get to follow a case from birth tinto therapy to illustrate the interaction of the various ideas. Finally, it includes note-taking aids, slides, handouts and short videos to keep it engaging and to aid you in successfully completing the course.
