There have never been more schools of psychotherapy, more training available for psychotherapists, and more therapy practices to master. Yet despite all this, there is little in the field of psychotherapy that is directly inspired by an understanding of the attachment-based developmental approach. A second concern is that the practice of psychotherapy itself seems to be increasingly divorced from the science of relationship, the science of emotion and the science of human development. This 15-session course has been created as a beginning attempt to address these issues.

For the full course outline, click on “Go to Course Page” button to the left. Making Sense of Therapy explores the art and science of healing through the lens of the attachment-based developmental approach. Although directed towards psychotherapists, formal training as a helping professional is not required.

Participants are required to have completed the following Neufeld Institute courses: 
Intensive I, Intensive II, Science of Emotion, PLAY series (Play 101, Play and Attachment, Play and Emotion)

Not required, but highly recommended are Intensive III: Becoming Attached and Making Sense of Adolescence Part I. If you are planning to take the prerequisites and recommended courses through self-paced study, please leave enough time to complete these courses before Therapy starts in September.
