with Barbara Nosal, Ph.D., LMFT

"Creating Authentic Connections: Healing Relational Trauma within the Family System"

This presentation identifies what creates Authentic Connections and the barriers that often prevent us from being our authentic self with others. Incorporating multigenerational transmission and attachment styles demonstrates how relational and emotional patterns are often the result of childhood upbringing. Participants learn how to identify and minimize "trauma responses" in the present resulting from unresolved childhood trauma and how to develop earned secure attachment with others. The benefits of being free from the past allow the authentic self to emerge and develop authentic connections with others.

Learning Objectives

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

  1. Give 3 examples of how emotional dysregulation in the present is a reaction to unresolved childhood trauma.
  2. Identify 3 barriers that prevent creating an authentic connection with others.
  3. Identify 3 ways that multi-generational transmission and attachment form life-long relational and emotional patterns.
  4. Explain 3 ways that clinicians can help their clients develop an earned secure attachment as adults.
