How Does Psychotherapy Heal? Psychotherapy is a wellspring for new beginnings. At the beginning of a lifetime, the infant forms its first relationship with its mother. The quality of this first human bond will profoundly influence the nature of the child’s subsequent relationships. This assertion is a central tenet of the school of psychology known as attachment theory. During the Blog Talk Radio Show Dr. Deri will discuss: (1) The four distinct patterns of attachment: secure, anxious, avoidant and disorganized. (2) The effect of an infant’s mode of attachment to its mother on the quality of that individual’s subsequent relationships. (3) How trauma and neglect lead to disturbances in attachment.
