What came first, the loss of attachment or the diagnosis?

For the child who is oppositional, did they respond with opposition after feeling disconnected from their primary attachment or have their oppositional behaviours put stressors on their primary relationships?

Imagine a client/ family in your clinic and you’re hearing about the oppositional and defiant child’s behaviour from frustrated parents – which came first, the behaviour and then the rupture in attachment. Or did the attachment come first and is showing as a behavioural disorder?

Join Christina Reese for a comprehensive recording where I'll teach you my proven, powerful approaches for helping identify and heal ruptured attachments in family and children. Learn the ways that attachment trauma and relationship dysfunction impacts a child’s ability to feel safe with adults, follow directions and be respectful.

Reframe the behaviours to identify the distress, learn how attachment trauma is related to every diagnosis, and how repairing the primary attachment relationship can reduce symptomology.

Discover attachment-focused interventions to:

  • Reduce symptomology for anxiety, aggression, opposition, inattention, and mood instability
  • Increase connection for better self-esteem, coping skills, and sense of belonging
  • Improve emotional and self-regulation for life-long attachment
  • Build attachment-focused therapeutic rapport

Bring life-altering change to the children that you are working with, repairing foundational relationships and giving them the skills they need for life-long relationships, health and stability.



This online program is worth 6 hours CPD.
