Description: Do you have clients who report difficulty in relationships? They may pick fights with friends or family members when vulnerability begins to develop. It is curious to them because they desire intimate relationships but at the same time are frightened. Attachment trauma adversely affects adult relationships. But discovering the power of healing and healthy attachment through education and tools that equip our clients to find safety and calm in themselves and in connection with others is powerful on their way to healing.
