Rebuilding Bonds: A Relational Approach to Repairing Family Ruptures

In this workshop, Andrea Blumenthal will draw on clinical work from the Foster Care and Adoption Project at the Ackerman Institute for the Family and present an approach that integrates ideas from family therapy, interpersonal neurobiology, and trauma studies to help families rebuild bonds after significant or long-standing relational ruptures. By simultaneously focusing on understanding the caregiver’s personal, relational and contextual experience and helping them attune to their children’s emotional needs, past injuries can be repaired and a sense of safety can be built in the present.
