About the Session

Session Description:

During this time of increased isolation, our usual means of getting our attachment needs met are not as available in the ways we are normally accustomed to. In addition to the life stressors of these unprecedented times, staying connected becomes even more of a challenge. In this workshop, you will be introduced to a model that proposes a hierarchy of attachment needs offering a practical approach to helping ourselves as well as our clients navigate this uncharted territory. Using the EMDR Life Stress protocol, you will be able to develop new patterns of response, generating opportunities for personal growth and connection.
