Workshop #3 & 6: Stress and Trauma: An Attachment-Based Perspective | PRESENTED BY Gordon Neufeld, Ph.D.

Fresh insights from the sciences of development, emotion and attachment shed light on the hidden wisdom of the stress response, the essence of trauma, and the pivotal role of both attachment and emotion in etiology and recovery. What is also revealed in putting the pieces together is a common denominator that cuts across syndromes and diagnoses and informs intervention. While the material is presented with clinicians in mind, this model of stress and trauma applies across all ages and venues, including private practice, treatment programs, as well as personal healing and recovery. This model also has significant implications for the prevention, recognition and treatment of distressed children and youth, whether via the school, the family, special programs or direct treatment.

  • To appreciate the true purpose and wisdom of the stress response
  • To understand trauma as a stuck stress response
  • To correctly identify the primary indicators of a stuck stress response
  • To appreciate the necessary and sufficient conditions for the stress response to be resolved
  • To identify natural and intuitive interventions that can be universally applied
  • To distill to the essence the help that is needed to reverse a stuck stress response
  • To understand the role of emotional playgrounds in the recovery of the resilience response
