Seminar: Karen Pando-Mars – New York, NY

Healing Relational Trauma: Tailoring Treatment to Presenting Attachment Styles

an AEDP NYC Seminar
at Mt. Sinai West, NYC
with Karen Pando-Mars, MFT

 

This seminar is for professionals and students in mental health and the healing arts and sciences including: Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFTs, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, and Masters & Doctoral students as well as soon-to-be licensed Interns & Trainees.

Attachment styles are strategies of defense that reveal early 
patterning with our caregivers that are wired into our nervous
systems. As such, they serve as thresholds into the betrayal,
 deprivation or loss that needs to be healed in order to transform relationships with self and other. Throughout our day together we will pinpoint classic blind spots that occur and specific metaskills to help therpists effectively engage with each attachment style.

Establishing a secure base provides an essential foundation for exploration. When treatment is informed by the attachment style presented in each moment, we can strengthen this base and mobilize transformation.

By attending this seminar, you will learn:

  • How to tailor therapeutic interventions to best attune to and motivate clients.
  • When dismissive defenses generate distance, ways to build connection.
  • When clients become preoccupied, how to help them focus internally and build regulation skills
  • When defensive strategies loosen, observe how disorganization can reveal unresolved trauma, and how to approach the work.
  • How to identify predictable blind spots in treatment and metaskills to fortify therapist self-care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify two characteristics of avoidant attachment styles.
  • Describe two ways to intervene with dismissive defenses in avoidant clients..
  • Describe two characteristics of anxious/ambivalent attachment styles.
  • Name two ways to regulate hyper-activation in preoccupied clients.
    Describetwo characteristics of disorganization/unresolved trauma in patients.
    Name two interventions for working with a patient who is processing unresolved trauma.
    Describe  two important qualities of the therapist to help establsh a secure base.

She is known for her warmth and approachability, and her ability to create safety in the supervisory relationship.
