Participants will be able to Explain how patterns of childhood attachment continues to impact people throughout their lives. Describe how the therapeutic relationship can help promote secure attachment in other relationships. Identify how love and attachment are related State what blocks attachment and learn strategies to unblock it and explain the essential connection between the presence of love in a therapeutic relationship and the client’s ability to heal.
