Attachment Trauma and the Nervous System
This workshop is designed to educate about different attachment styles and how they impact the nervous system. Relational systems are so important in our everyday lives that we may not realize there are disruptions that can be caused by trauma. In this discussion, we will examine how to begin to heal these attachment wounds and have more functional relationships.
As a result of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
- Identify the different types of trauma and how trauma presents physiologically
- Discuss functions of the Autonomic Nervous System and the threat response
- Identify three phases of trauma treatment and treatment objectives for managing nervous system dysregulation
- Explain different attachment styles and how traumatic experiences can shape the type of attachment systems we have
