Clinic to Co-sponsor CE Event on Attachment, Trauma in Dallas

Wednesday, February 6, 2013
The Menninger Clinic is pleased to co-sponsor "The Role of Attachment in Trauma Therapy" with The Refuge on Friday, February 22, in Dallas.
Participants will explore different attachment styles and the fundamental role of attachment in emotion regulation. Participants will also understand how developmental research on the intergenerational transmission of trauma dovetails with research on mentalizing and how this developmental knowledge is translated into the psychotherapeutic treatment of trauma.
Leading the workshop are Jon Allen, PhD, and Ryan Soave, MA, CTT. Dr. Allen holds the Helen Malsin Palley Chair in Mental Health Research and is professor of Psychiatry in the Menninger Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Baylor College of Medicine and a senior staff psychologist at Menninger.
Mr. Soave is a certified trauma therapist and holds a master’s degree in mental health counseling. He works at The Refuge and is a second-year, somatic-experiencing student.

The workshop will be held from 9:30 am to 4 pm at Royal Oaks Country Club, 7915 Greenville Ave., Dallas, TX 75231. There is a $25 fee to participate; lunch is included. For more information, please contact Shea Beasley at 352-512-8877 or Karen Hunt at 214-802-5936. Registration is available online.


This event offers 5.0 credits sponsored by The Institute for Continuing Education. Credit is offered for psychology, social work, nursing, marriage-family and counseling. Application forms will be available at the workshop.
