Menninger to Present Free Webinar on Attachment

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Menninger is pleased to announce that Michael Groat, PhD, MS, director of our Adult Division, and Jon G. Allen, PhD, senior staff psychologist, will present the webinar "Attachment as a Framework for Treatment" on Wednesday, August 19, from 12-1 pm Central Time.


Participants in this free webinar will learn how to help patients identify their patterns of secure and insecure attachment as well as understand how those patterns develop in childhood relationships and are perpetuated – for better or worse – in adult relationships. 


The learning objectives of the webinar are:

  1. Participants will demonstrate understanding of the role of attachment strategies in emotion regulation.
  2. Participants will demonstrate understanding of the role of mentalizing in attachment and trust.
  3. Participants will be able to verbalize how to educate patients about attachment and mentalizing.
