CBT has an established evidence base for treating various mental and behavioural disorders.
Attachment history and pattern helps to deepen the understanding of the person from a
developmental, historical and maturational perspective.
Combining insights from CBT and attachment theory helps to offer a more attuned, acceptable and effective intervention in a time limited fashion. Principles of this approach are useful to psychiatrists, nurses, social workers and community team members, who deal with complexity.
Led by Dr P J Saju, this course involves a detailed case study of a person with complex trauma, dissociation and self-harm. Using a case discussion model, the presentation will cover basics of attachment theory, adult attachment patterns, therapeutic relationship informed by attachment patterns, integrated formulation, and adaptations to traditional CBT.
