    with Dalila Jusic-LaBerge, LMFTT


    "Women with an Anxious Attachment Style in Romantic Relationships: Etiology, Misconceptions, and Treatment Tips"


    This presentation is designed to shed more light on a specific demographic, modern women who are seeking romantic relationships, but who are struggling due to an anxious attachment style. There is a lot of misconception about this segment of the population, and due to these misconceptions, these women continue suffering with the similar kind of emotional wounding as the original emotional wounds or traumas that stem from their family of origin. Understanding these misconceptions will help us empower our clients with more effective interventions, so they can thrive in their romantic relationships. The background knowledge of this presentation is based on well researched field of attachment theory and my training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, as well as years of my work with women who are seeking romantic relationships.


    The goal of this course is to improve sophistication and overall understanding of challenges modern women with an anxious attachment style face in romantic relationships.


    Learning Objectives

    In successfully completing and attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

    1. Gain awareness and understanding of how onset of romantic relationships trigger trauma that led to an anxious attachment style as evident by ability to list 3 signs of anxious attachment style.
    2. Increase cultural competence and understanding of modern women with an anxious attachment style in a broader socio-cultural setting as evident by being able to list 3 ways in which adopted narrative contributes to further sense of shame and self-defeat of women with anxious attachment style.
    3. Become more aware and emotionally attuned to clients with an anxious attachment style as evident by listing 3 effective clinical interventions.

    Presenter:

    Dalila Jusic-LaBerge, LMFT is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and the owner of Be Here & Now Relationship Academy. She specializes in working with amazing, accomplished women, who yearn for love but feel lost in romantic relationships.

A lot of pain in relationships coincides with anxiety, stress, emptiness, irritability, and trauma. She utilizes Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a mindfulness based body-mind oriented counseling, especially effective in treating anxiety, emotional pain, stress, and trauma or difficult past.

    with Sara Jasper, JD


    Advertising is a key component of marketing psychotherapy services. During her 90-minute presentation, CAMFT Staff Attorney Sara Jasper will review the changes to CAMFT’s ethical standard regarding solicitation of testimonials.
