Neurobiology Informed Action: Transforming Relational Trauma to Earned Secure Attachment
Attachment trauma impacts all aspects of life. Many current therapeutic modalities address these relational ruptures through the lens of Neurobiology. We will review several of these modalities as we present the idea that Moreno was informed by Neurobiology before it had a name. We will explore how the psychodramatic stage has been a place of exploring and integrating healing by naming directorial choice points and interventions that impact the development of earned secure attachment.
After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Recognize and explore the 4 attachment styles and the value of “Bottom Up” processing associated with theories influenced by Neurobiology;
2. Identify the symptoms of attachment trauma and learn how to direct relational repair that promotes a felt sense of earned secure attachment.
