Exploring the Neuropsychoanalytic Foundations of Attachment

Exploring the Neuropsychoanalytic Foundations of Attachment

Maggie Zellner, PhD

Fridays for 10 weeks, Jan 12 — May 25, 2018, 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM

flyerThe seminar will examine the neural mechanisms underlying secure attachment in the first years of life, and the dysregulations that correlate with insecure attachments. We will study the seven primary emotion systems in the brain and how they interact during the attachment process. Topics may include the neurophysiology involved in the development of a sense of safety, the origins of theory of mind, the early roots of object relations, and more. Discussions will include clinical material that highlights attachment dynamics in the treatment, as well as in the analyst's and patient's history.

This seminar will be conducted via video link at an East Bay Location.

January 12,26; February 9,23; March 9,23; April 13, 20, May 11,25.
