Research in interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) currently reveals nine domains of integration that are developed and strengthened in the context of secure attachment. This integration process also correlates with a client’s awareness of and attunement to the mind’s full activity in the present moment. Awareness and attunement, when practiced repetitively, lead to a durable transformation, most notably in the context of vulnerable, confessional communities. This workshop will explore the fundamental IPNB features that assist psychologists and other licensed mental health professionals in addressing those events that are taking place directly in the therapeutic encounter within these communities that lead to durable transformation.

Learning Objectives

1. Identify the nine domains of integration of IPNB
2. Apply principles of integration to enable patients to develop a secure attachment
3. Describe how to assist patients in making durable changes via the practice of attunement to the activity of the mind in the present moment across the nine domains of integration
