This complete set includes all nine of the Attachment Core Pattern Therapy lectures in MP3 format, including a FREE copy of the Overview MP3 + Overview PDF! Each of the nine core patterns contains a one hour talk and each core pattern is accompanied by a PDF with a circular diagram of the core pattern, an explanation of the development of this core pattern, and all applicable interventions to exit the destructive dance. Therapist will find these core pattern PDF’s to be a great handout for clients.
When two of these problematic love styles collide in adult romantic relationship couples are unwittingly re-creating a primary attachment relationship similar to their family of origin. Eventually, when the facades begin to disappear and conflict ensues, a core pattern of reactivity begins to form which becomes a repetitive fight or way of interacting that repeats over and over. These core patterns are unexplored, automatic, predictable and as so far as the couple goes, involuntary. Interventions are targeted at helping each person see their part of the destructive dance and using a comfort circle to create a new successful pattern of relating.
We prefer to see couples together (not individually) as these reactive patterns are best observed when couples are interacting and regulation is best learned within the primary attachment relationship.
A free PDF file is also included for each core pattern (13-22 pages depending on the combination) which includes:
- A diagram of your Core Pattern.
- Bullet point description of each love style.
- Initial attraction.
- Explanation of each person’s experience when the core pattern is activated in the relationship.
- Individual growth steps for each style.
- Interventions and suggestions to exit the core pattern.
Therapists will find this a great handout for clients.
