When Is Insecure Attachment the Real Issue in Therapy?
Editor of Psychotherapy Networker
Psychotherapist Bruce Ecker, LMFT paints a vivid picture of how therapists can determine whether attachment issues underlie a given client's problem patterns. He narrates two compelling case examples that show how the implicit "emotional learnings" driving a client's symptoms can be brought into explicit awareness through empathic, experiential methods, making the presence or absence of attachment material directly apparent in a non-theoretical and inherently accurate manner.
Viewers are briefed also on how such emotional learnings undergo dissolution through memory reconsolidation---the only process known to neuroscience that can eliminate an emotional learning.
What Bruce describes in this video is a sample of the Routledge book, Unlocking the Emotional Brain: Eliminating Symptoms at Their Roots Using Memory Reconsolidation by Bruce Ecker, Robin Ticic and Laurel Hulley. For more information about this book, click here.
This interview was part of a webcast series on the Networker website.
Bruce Ecker is co-director of the Coherence Psychology Institute.
He and Laurel Hulley are the originators of Coherence Therapy.
