Bindung und Migration
17th International Attachment Conference
Attachment and Divorce
October 05 - October 07, 2018
Bindung und Migration

The journey I embark upon with my preoccupied/disorganised clients, therefore, is not so dissimilar to the one I have with all my other clients but one that more painfully confronts the client's need to mourn their relentless disappointment in their wistful searching and yearning for the ideal care-giver.

We also need to pay attention to the client’s vested interest empowered by a protective need to keep things exactly as they have always been, and by doing so, feeling helplessness and indecisiveness and 'sitting on the fence' . In doing so, the client is not fully aware of his need to constantly recreate the past in the present. This presentation is meant to shed some light into the work with these clients and share some effective ways of overcoming the client's feeling of being stuck in relentless hope.
