In this presentation, Dr. Ruth Schmidt Neven describes the theory and practice of attachment including its history and research. The presentation helps us comprehend how attachment as a relational construct expands from infancy over the lifespan. Within this context, positive infant-parent relationships have a transformative function that create the potential for mutuality, reciprocity and shared meaning and thereby provide a continuing protective system through to adulthood. The presentation looks closely at the therapeutic challenges we face as practitioners when there is a breakdown in the attachment process. How do we link relationships, attachment and the brain and therapeutically address cognitive functioning, brain development and the perpetuation of trauma for the developing child? Through exploring the benefits of a meaning making psychodynamic approach, Dr. Ruth Schmidt Neven brings to life the opportunities we have in our therapeutic interactions.

YOUR GUIDE

Dr. Ruth Schmidt Neven
All audio training modules are all narrated by Dr. Ruth Schmidt Neven and are based on her training programs run throughout Australia and overseas. Ruth has an international reputation in the field and her trainings have been presented, at the University of Cambridge School of Education, UK ; Peabody College, Vanderbilt University US; Washington School of Psychiatry US; Stellenbosch University South Africa and NScience Training for Therapists, London UK. She has also been an invited speaker at international conferences. The audio modules build on the premise that assessment and therapeutic communication do not commence with the uncovering of pathology, but with the understanding of the meaning of behaviour within a relational context. The audio modules aim to enrich and expand the clinical, practical, and observational skills of practitioners in the service of adult, child, and family mental health. Ruth’s clinical approach has been described as one that ‘ passionately and knowledgeably advocates the need for professionals to think alongside their clients, trying to understand the presenting difficulties in the context of individual child development, intergenerational family relationships and environmental factors.’
