Event description
A seminar for counselors and therapists discussing how to hold Family Therapy and Attachment Theory together through a Christian lens.

About this Event

A revolution happened in the counseling world in the 1960’s with the advent of Family Therapy. Cybernetics and Systems Theory came into play as psychiatrists and others turned the counseling world upside down and started to see the whole family all at the same time in the same room. It was scandalous. These women and men were dream-filled inventors of a new way of seeing everything. They taught us to look at whole of the dynamics in the family.

Then, a revolution of a different kind occurred in the 1990’s, a revolution with three towers. Allan Schore led the way in the advance of Interpersonal Neurobiology. Mario Mikulincer and Phillip Shaver advanced the thinking about attachment in adults. And Peter Levine, among others, thinking holistically about human persons and the effects of trauma on them, refocused the therapy world on the body and its part in healthy functioning. These great thinker/therapists refocused our attention on fine details of people and their troubles and taught us specific interventions to heal specific issues.

In this seminar, Dr. Zink will share how these the great therapists hold together the thinking and therapy of both revolutions and remind us of the vision of Family Therapy and the specifics of Attachment Theory, running it all through the lens of God’s Real Truth. Dr. Zink will lead us in a discussion of how we can continue to grow as therapists by holding these two contrary viewpoints together for the good of all of our clients.
