Body and attachment

Saturday, 17th November 2018

Workshop: 10:00- 13:00

Speaker: Nicola Diamond

In this seminar I am going to look at the relation between the body and attachment , look at developments in the attachment field and it's implications for therapy. I will give my take on the upsurge of neuroscience in attachment thinking and will in this context refer to my take which i started to address in my book Between Skins 2013

Attachment-based Play:

from Mess to Monsters


Workshop: 10:00 - 17:00 

Saturday, 29th June 2019 

Speaker: Dr Sue Jennings

Power Point Presentation and Practical Workshop

This day will explore how attachment develops from conception and is strengthened by pregnancy and childbirth.  Parents-to-be have imagined, playful conversations with their unborn child which continue after birth.  Interactive attachment-play involving sensory, messy and rhythmic exploration strengthens positive attachment, empathy and resilience.  This process is defined as Neuro-Dramatic-Play (Jennings 2011) which forms a basis for healthy attachments.

In this workshop we will show how sensory and messy play and human heart beats are essential for developmental attachment-based play and leads to form and order from seeming chaos!  The archetypal  monster is then created and embodied, this empowering the increasingly independent infant. 

NDP is applicable at all ages and stages and examples will be given or work with adults and elderly people.  NDP also addresses loss of Attachments and life transitions beyond teenager hood.

The workshop encourages 'take-away skills' for therapists of all backgrounds as well as teachers and parents.
