Attachment-based therapy: Relationships are the heart’s center of life. As children, adults, and families, we all face obstacles and experience traumatic events which shape our personalities and behavior. Having a poor attachment during important developmental years can lead to growing up to be fearful, confused, and insecure. This ultimately can lead to becoming depressed or even suicidal as adolescents.
What Our Therapists Do
At ATTC, we help people overcome traumatic events, and re-establish healthy attachments. We also work, together, to help you restore the connections, security, and trust essential to living a fulfilling life. When forming a trusting relationship with parental figures or with the therapist, the client is better prepared to form strong bonds in other relationships.
How Attachment-Based Therapy Works
Attachment-based therapy is a brief, process-oriented form of psychological counseling. The client-therapist relationship is based on developing or rebuilding trust and centers on expressing emotions. By reviewing the connection between an infant’s early attachment experiences with primary caregivers, and the infant’s ability to develop normally and ultimately form healthy emotional and physical relationships as an adult. Attachment-based therapy aims to build or rebuild a trusting, supportive relationship that will help prevent or treat anxiety or depression.
