Attachment—Based counselling and therapy has multiple approaches. This workshop explores how to conceptualise and apply a range of evidenced Attachment-based approaches in an integrated manner. The integrated manner utilises a unique overlay of models that lay the foundation of conceptualising the moment of interaction in an attachment-based framework to analyse what moment is this? For both the client and the therapist. Once the moment is understood, the intervention choice and action steps are easier to apply.
The neuroscience of care-giving and parenting is critical to responding to the needs of all children, especially those traumatised and at-risk children and young people. An in-depth understanding of attachment and the process of therapeutic engagement has been used as the basis for the development of integrated attachment-based counselling and therapy. It is also at the heart of family functioning and therapeutic relationships. Our training aims to strengthen therapeutic relationships, client’s parenting capacity through enhancing reflective functioning, arousal and trauma response management as well as helping clinicians, clients, parents and children understand their survival strategies and provide extra tools for living and relational responding.
The workshop explores;
Dynamic Maturational Model,
Circle of Security,
Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy,
Neuroscience of development,
Trauma informed approaches,
Somatic and body connections.
A must for any counsellor, therapist, psychiatrist, youth worker, case manager, support worker, psychologist, social worker, play therapist, disability worker, teacher, trainer, coach, analyst or psycho-dynamic workers.

Km Warner and Jeff Taylor are both Master therapists with extensive study, training and experience in attachment based counselling and therapy. Each having over 25 years in the provision of services, training and clinical supervision. See their biography page.
Kim and Jeff have developed the Integrated Attachment-based Counselling and Therapy model after three decades of research, training, and development. The workshop and the subsequent training courses and supervision training models all link to provide a comprehensive attachment-based counselling model.
Workshop benefits are many;
1. Extensive understanding of the underpinning Theories
2. Comprehensive understanding of the conceptualisation and assessment of client and therapeutic interaction.
3. Integrated intervention or treatment plan relating to the individual and relational strategies and trauma responses.
The process will be explained in a seven step counselling intervention framework. The seven step model starts from the engagement rapport building stage through to comprehensive understanding of the treatment model and interventions.
This workshop sets the foundation for a Diploma of integrated Attachment-Based Counselling & Therapy.
Clinical Supervision Training Certification will be provided in the future.
This course is acceptable as foundation knowledge for the Australian Association of Integrated Attachment-based counselling and therapy.
