    Attachment: 

    Enhancing Attachment Bonds 
    in Clinical, Community, Family and Educational Settings


    Friday March 2, 2018
    8:30 – 3pm
    Gateway Community College
    New Haven, Connecticut


    A conference organized by the Attachment Network of Connecticut, the Connecticut Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology, the Yale Child Study Center.


    Why a conference on Attachment?

    Attachment relationships are fundamental: they influence the social, emotional, cognitive and behavioral adjustment of all individuals. Attachment patterns are established early in childhood and become the model of each person’s particular disposition towards relating to others. When our attachment relationships are disturbed, it can impact all areas of functioning. Understanding the role of attachment in relationships can enhance the effectiveness of all who work with children, adolescents, adults, families and communities.


    Who might benefit from a conference on Attachment?

    Clinicians, teachers and other school personnel, child-care providers, pediatricians, and those who work in various roles in the community can benefit from understanding how secure attachments are cultivated. Interventions that support secure attachment not only may enhance mental health, they also provide novel strategies to address behavioral difficulties.

    What the Thunder Said:

    A story of artistic expression in the healing of childhood trauma

    Lunch will follow for all attendees



    Summary

    Madness, trauma and the creative process are intrinsically unconventional and disruptive. When we are the listener and observer, we can be discombobulated in our efforts to understand what we hear and witness. Exploring the landscape of uncertainty in creative and analytic work, this presentation also explores how the message of the creator is processed and reflected in relationship and how this challenges established perspectives. 


    The format of this presentation will be highly interactive, with a focus on a short film, case material, and discussion integrated throughout.


    The film, created by the patient, powerfully documents a series of interactions between the filmmaker and her severely mentally ill mother. Theoretical presentation will identify ways to utilize the work of Balint, Brothers and others to foster work with trauma, especially rage and the desire to forgive. 


    Speaker

    Kathryn White, PhD is a CSPP member, in private practice in New Haven, formerly supervising Clinical Faculty of the Department of Psychology at the University of Tennessee, and twice President of the Applanchian Psychoanalytic Society.
