BROKEN HEARTS, BROKEN LIVES AND BLOCKED TRUST: HEALING TROUBLED CHILDREN THROUGH ATTACHMENT-FOCUSED INTERVENTIONS with international attachment expert Dr Dan Hughes

"Brilliant conferece... Dan is great at storytelling and getting the message across through his obvious experience and love for the job." (delegates, 10 Nov 2018)

In this deeply moving and highly informative presentation, famous clinician Dr Dan Hughes will address how to help children and young people who have been catastrophically let down, hurt and/or betrayed by the people who are supposed to care for them. Some then switch off from the world of people, move into cold, cut off states, re-victimising others as they themselves have been treated. Others retreat into a solitary world preferring to relate to technology than to people. Sadly ‘blocked trust,’ often leads to other people disliking these children, being frightened of them getting angry with them or giving up on them, just the responses these children know so well.

Dr Dan Hughes will address how to relate to a child, what to say or how to be to enable them to make that essential shift from blocked trust to trust, from avoidant or disorganised attachment to secure attachment. Dan will offer theory, practice and moving case material to show how to reach out to children who don't want to feel, to get close to anyone, and who often treat people who want to help with contempt.

Film footage will be used to illustrate how these children can be offered sanctuary, playfulness and ultimately a re- engagement with life as a privileged adventure rather than a living nightmare.

  • Learn how to emotionally regulate you in order to emotionally regulate them in the face of the most provocative, hurtful, shocking interactions
