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 (no longer able to give APA credit, so psychologists will not be able to use this for CE's).

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.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

-Describe an internal working map (IWM) and it's role in shaping how it drives unconscious perceptions of the self and the world and how to utilize this knowledge in your own life and your clinical practice.

- Utilize the Modern Attachment-Regulation Spectrum as a tool to help create new internal and interpersonal experiences.

-Facilitate your own and your client's ability to differentiate between IWM's and moment-to-moment states of mind

-Describe how affective neuroscience and attachment science are different but related in order to sharpen your clinical insight and therapeutic interventions.

- Identify dysregulated states of mind in yourself and your clients to improve your clinical work and develop specific strategies for moving toward more grounded, organized states of mind.

- Develop a strategy based on type of dysregulation or internal working map to move toward security
