A UCLA classmate just tipped me off to a really great opportunity for mental health professionals who want to learn more about attachment theory's impact on our mental well-being. Tomorrow, June 9th, at 5:00 p.m. EST/2:00 p.m. PST, Dr. Dan Siegel, Dr. Sue Johnson, among other experts will be hosting a free webinar called Secure Attachment as the Foundation of Emotional Well-Being.
I think this webinar is a must-see for any prospective mental health students who plans to do clinical work in the future. To register for the event, please click HERE. Below is a short description of the topics that will be discussed:
Children who form secure attachments with their parent(s) or caregiver(s) typically have a secure, coherent sense of self in adulthood. Listen to experts discuss the mechanisms that help foster secure attachments, learn about the importance of forming secure attachment, and see how attachment affects you and your loved ones. You'll also find out how you can "earn" security in adulthood and why bullying is an expression of insecure attachment.
If this sounds appealing, you might also be interested in watching PBS' This Emotional Life, a three-part series that looks at "the human journey towards happiness." Below is a promotional trailer for the series featuring Larry David, one of my favorite comedians:
