The Primacy of Attachment Wounds in Psychotherapy

Date: Fri, Jul 16, 2021

Time: 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT

4 CEs available to NYS LMHCs, LMFTs, LCSWs, LMSWs, LCATs, and NYS Licensed Psychologists provided by Hudson Valley Professional Development, LLC upon successful completion of training.

Facilitators: David Crenshaw, PhD and Sarah Caprioli, LMHC

If effective therapeutic intervention is not offered, what Allan Schore calls “relational trauma” resulting from disruption or inadequacy of the empathic, sensitive, responsive bond between the parents (typically the mother) and infant can lead to cumulative deprivation throughout life. The British Object Relations psychiatrists referred to this as “double deprivation”. The original deprivation was imposed by the external circumstances but it is compounded both by later interpersonal traumas as evidenced by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and by deprivation that is self-imposed if adequate grieving and mourning do not take place. These cumulative impingements on development are well known by clinicians who treat youth with complex trauma. Neuroscience research has elucidated more clearly the neurobiological correlates in the developmental process of such youth. In spite of the developmental challenges, in the psychotherapy process, it is crucial to not overlook strengths and the robust self-reparative drive that can lead to resilience.

Of all the manifestations of grief, our physical reactions have been the least addressed. Traditional counseling focuses on talking about grief but pays little attention to what is happening in the bodies of grievers. Including the body in grief work can greatly enhance outcomes since our bodies have their own way of communicating. This training will focus on ways to integrate the body in our clinical work using current models of care that are trauma-informed. Working collaboratively with clients to notice, track and regulate their physical sensations can relieve discomfort and help them develop useful resources in their grief process.

In this two-hour interactive workshop, participants will be introduced to some clinical applications of Origami as a therapeutic modality. Based on the Expressive Origami Therapy framework developed by Toshiko Kobayashi, LCAT, and drawing from recent Neuroscience research, this experiential workshop will explore how folding origami can improve cognitive functioning. This workshop will include guided demonstrations, mindful breathing exercises, and group discussion, all designed to make this an interactive learning experience.

Origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, can be a creative way for clients to self-regulate. When engaged in mindfully, origami can be an active complement to guided mindful breathing exercises. The benefits of folding origami, a seemingly simple activity, are far greater than one might think. Neuroscience has demonstrated that origami engages both hemispheres of your brain. Research is showing that in engaging both sides of the brain we can improve cognitive functioning and slow the effects of cognitive decline.
