Become a secure base from which your clients can safely explore relationship. This brief workshop offers a simple framework for engaging and evolving attachment dynamics using curiosity and experimentation within a therapeutic relationship. Drawing from Hakomi, interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory and Primary Attachment Therapy, this approach is accessible, dynamic and adaptable to many scopes of practice. Techniques include eyes-open mindfulness, working in the radical immediacy of the transpiring present moment, tracking, contacting, validating and facilitating shared explorations. Appropriate for somatic practitioners at any level of experience, this approach is practical, creative and fun.

What You Will Learn 
In this workshop, you will: 

1) Identify opportunities for exploring attachment dynamics within a range of therapeutic contexts;
2) Use the mindful exploration framework as a container for studying attachment responses;
3) Adapt the skills of tracking, contact, mindfulness, embodiment and validation to elicit and engage attachment material;
4) Facilitate eyes open mindfulness in the "transpiring present moment"
5) Track and contact immediate relational responses;
6) Set up and carry out mindful explorations of relationship with self, other and the environment;
7) Explore attachment within the context of the practitioner-client relationship.

Who Is This For?
This workshop is open and relevant to Somatic practitioners with interest in Attachment work and other helping professionals.
