Pacific time: DISORGANIZED ATTACHMENT: Understanding and Healing with Empathy (90 minutes with optional 30 min q&a afterwards)
The heartbeat of secure attachment is a dance of relational connection. We get to count on one another for responsiveness, presence and aliveness. When trauma enters the family, this heartbeat is interrupted. The basic element of human interaction, contingent timing, gets turned on its head. And disorganization comes into the scene, accompanied by dissociation, numbness, alarm, suspicion, jealousy, hostility, rage, violence, and the embodied sense that we must expect the worst to be safe. The default network is coopted for defensiveness and obsession, and unpredictability is the basic unit of relationship. As we bring empathy into such a system, things can start to change. Join Sarah for an exploration of the journey of healing for any bubbles of traumatic attachment that may be floating
around in your system.
