Exploring The Dynamics Of Attachments In Adult Life – Eliane Meyer

February 8 - February 9

An Experiential Group for Professional Caregivers

Presented by Eliane Meyer and Karen Ellis

Dear Colleague,

We are starting an experiential group based on the McCluskey model ‘Exploring the dynamics of attachment in adult life’ for professional caregivers. The group will explore the way in which our experiences of careseeking and caregiving, which have their roots in infancy, shape our expectations and responses to careseeking and caregiving in adult life. It is a model based on companionable and supportive relationships and the group aims to be a safe space for us to explore those experiences without fear.

As professionals offering a service in the field of mental health and social care we will be aware of the many different ways that people express their careseeking needs, and how difficult it is sometimes to interpret these accurately and respond. People who have had contradictory experiences of caregiving will often tend to miscue professional caregivers so that any attempt at caregiving is frustrated and can end up as a frustrating experience for both parties.

The dynamics of attachment consist of several goal-corrected systems. These are careseeking, caregiving, sexuality, exploratory interest sharing with peers, the personal system for self-defence, the internal supportive or unsupportive environments and the personally created external supportive environment (home/lifestyle). The theory suggests that these systems work together as a single process to contribute to and maintain maximum wellbeing.

The cost will be £150 if booked before 31st December 2019, £195 thereafter.

The group would only be viable with at least 8 participants, the maximum is 12.

Eliane is BACP accredited and has trained in this model with Una McCluskey for several years. Karen is an ACAT accredited Cognitive Analytic Therapy Practitioner.

If you are interested or have any questions, please do get back to us, we will be delighted to hear from you.

Kind Regards
