Certificate in Attachment Focused Adult Psychotherapy: Advanced Course
Dates: March 25, 26, April 29, 30, 2019
Facilitator:
 Annette Kussin, MSW., RSW.
Prerequisite: Becoming an Adult Attachment Focused Therapist workshop.
This training is suitable for: Experienced therapists who have knowledge about Child Attachment and experience working with adults. This training will provide an advanced level of assessing and treating adults from an Attachment-Focused Model of Psychotherapy.
Adult attachments develop as an unconscious continuum of an infants and child's early attachment experiences and the experiences of the older child and adolescent in relationships. Such experiences either confirm the early insecure attachments or transform them into more secure attachments. Adult attachments also serve the same function as infant attachments: to ensure that the needs for safety, security and nurturing are provided in an intimate relationship. By understanding adult attachment, therapists can understand the problems that clients are experiencing in their self-perception and in intimate relationships from a new and optimistic paradigm.  Clients will also discover a new perspective on their problems that is non-judgmental and hopeful for positive change. Although by adulthood, attachment categories are well entrenched. Attachment-focused adult psychotherapy can initiate and assist the process of change to a more securely attached adult who will be more successful in relationships and life.

Understanding Trauma, Victimization and its Clinical Implications Within the Work of Addiction Counselling
Dates: May 16 & 17, 2019
Facilitator:
Ian Robertson, MSW., RSW.
This training is suitable for: Mental health professionals, medical professionals, front-line workers, social workers, residential workers, counselors and psychotherapists who provide services to vulnerable populations.
Recent research has confirmed what addiction treatment providers already knew to be true: the large majority of people who suffer from addiction issues also have a history of trauma and/or victimization.  Experiences of trauma can cause lasting psychological and physiological effects including deficiencies in emotional regulation, problem solving and impulse control. This, in turn, can lead to the use of alcohol, drugs and/or addictive behaviours as a "functional fit" to cope with overwhelming emotions, physical dysregulation and other post-traumatic symptoms. This 2-day workshop explores the connection between trauma and addiction with a focus on providing knowledge, tools and resources to effectively serve clients who are dealing with both trauma and addiction issues.
This is Learning Module 2 of the 2019 Advanced Certificate in Addiction Counselling: Level 2. This module may be taken separately from the certificate program as a stand-alone workshop.
