“The fantastic news is that if you can make sense of your childhood experiences—especially your relationships with your parents—you can transform your attachment models toward security. The reason this is important is that relationships— with friends, with romantic partners, with present or possible future offspring—will be profoundly enhanced. And you’ll feel better with yourself, too!” ~Dr. Dan Siegel
What could be more important than understanding your story and how it shapes who you are? Attachment research demonstrates that making sense of your past is the best predictor of your ability to shape your future as a parent. Research shows that when we fail to make sense of our past, we find ourselves reliving and recreating it, essentially having old hurts re-emerge over and over again. We carry around deep wounds, behaviors and beliefs about ourselves from our earliest attachments that unconsciously direct our lives.
In this eCourse, Drs. Dan Siegel and Lisa Firestone will draw upon the latest neurobiological research, attachment theory and their clinical experience to guide you through the process of creating a coherent narrative in order to make sense of your life. This process can help you resolve old traumas, big and small, so that they no longer haunt you in your life today. When you create a coherent narrative, you actually rewire your brain to cultivate security within yourself and your relationships.
Through guided writing exercises and integrative activities, you will get to know yourself on a deep level. Additionally, this eCourse will provide you with tools for ongoing growth, so you can better integrate your emotions, heal insecure attachment and flourish in all your relationships.
