Repairing a Ruptured Attachment Relationship

Go Back

 



 Newborn babies are born neurologically wired to attach to their Mothers, but it may be a different story from the Mother’s point of view. This isn’t a judgement because, life happens to people – but, needless to say, this non-availability of the primary attachment figure can severely impact the person’s ability to function in society.

We need to consider:

  • What impact does ruptured attachment have on a person’s capacity to mentalise?
  • What role does trauma play in this, (especially inter-generational trauma) and what is the difference in impact if the trauma is event specific rather than relational? and
  • What are the practical therapeutic routes to repairing a ruptured attachment relationship?

Access to a healthy attachment relationship is as important as access to food and air for a child’s development. While we wouldn’t dream of saying that a child in transient care placement should not be fed until they find a forever home, yet we do say let’s not begin the attachment repair work until they are in a forever home.To start the workshop, Joanna will challenge this practice and propose an alternative model of attachment repair work which can be applied at any stage.
