Insecure attachment styles can make people vulnerable to, and exacerbate, psychopathology. In contrast, those with a secure attachment style have a greater sense of well-being, navigate relationships in a healthier way, and are more resilient to difficulties that arise. This presentation will briefly review attachment theory. Then it will address how to nurture in patients a more secure attachment style by guiding them to develop greater compassionate self-awareness This approach provides an approach to treatment that can integrate well with various therapeutic approaches.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe how insecure attachment relates to psychopathology, undermining healthy relationships with self and others.
2. Explain how developing secure attachment can improve treatment effectiveness.
3. Demonstrate techniques to increase five fundamental domains of self-awareness.
4. Provide individualized treatment to help insecure patients develop more secure attachment and improved treatment outcomes. 

This program is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and graduate students. It will be presented at an intermediate level, meant for those with some prior knowledge of the subject matter.
