The secure attachment of an infant to its mother or other primary carer as the basic building block of strong interpersonal relations in adulthood has held particular sway in the thinking of practitioners ever since Freud described it as ‘the first and strongest love object and the prototype of all later love relations’.
Dr Christopher Clulow is a Consultant Couple Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and an expert in the field of attachment, having published extensively on couple psychotherapy from an attachment perspective. As part of this day-long seminar, he will offer participants the opportunity to engage in live supervision with an attachment focus.
The study day will widen our understanding of how our earliest love relationships provide the foundations for – if not necessarily the prototypes of – adult love relationships, especially those we have as partners and parents. We will consider how adult love relationships differ from those of childhood and learn how to recognise secure and insecure partnerships both inside and outside the consulting room.
The seminar will interweave parent-infant, adult-adult and therapist-patient couple domains to explore different aspects of love relationships: attachment, caregiving, sensuality, sexuality, interest-sharing and intersubjectivity.
Through clinical vignettes and attachment-informed concepts, the seminar will explore the nature of love, and apply this to the process of psychotherapy with couples. Particular attention will be paid to Winnicott’s concept of mirroring in highlighting processes that are central to regulating affect in close relationships and fostering change.
