Treatment of Attachment Trauma and the Dissociative Sequelae Through The Lifespan: EMDR and Case Con

Updated: Nov 12, 2019

When earliest relationships are traumatic, attachment injuries can significantly change the trajectory of one’s life. Bonding and attachment are neurobiologically driven survival mechanisms; but when irreconcilable conflict exists within the innate mechanisms of survival and attachment, individuals can experience extreme distress leading to mental health disorders and physical disease. Although these conditions may begin in infancy, if untreated they can endure for a lifetime. It is so essential that attachment disruptions be addressed in both children and adults experiencing complex trauma reactions, including Axis II conditions and dissociation. EMDR provides a comprehensive, integrative, and effective approach to the treatment of attachment and the dissociative sequelae.
