Understanding the Effect Early Attachment Experiences Have on Our Relationships Today
Tuesday, December 12; 7:00 - 9:00 PM

Cost: $15 suggested donation; no one turned away for lack of funds

Early attachment experiences affect our view of ourselves, our relationships, and the regulation (or dys-regulation) of our nervous system.  Until recently, very little was known about these attachment experiences, and the four different attachment styles into which these attachment experiences are classified.  However, fortunately, powerful, illuminating, and healing research-based information is becoming available . . .

Join Vicki Allen, a professional psychotherapist and licensed social worker, to learn how we can all return to a state of secure attachment with all the social, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits that come with secure attachment.

What will you gain from this workshop? A better understanding yourself and others, as well as the major influences in the dynamics of our personal, intimate relationships.  Those interested in how to increase secure attachment in their own children, or children with whom they work professionally, will also benefit from this class.
