Competing Attachment in Romantic Relationships

Mar 31, 2019 12:15pm ‐ Mar 31, 2019 1:15pm


Description

Competing attachment is a type of threat to romantic attachment bonds in which one partner turns outside of the relationship to something or someone else for escape, soothing, comfort, and/or attention to substitute for unmet attachment needs. This workshop will present current research on competing attachment as a threat to adult romantic relationships and provides a guidepost for therapists and clinicians to use attachment-based interventions in the treatment of competing attachment in romantic relationships.

  • Participants will have an operational definition of competing attachment and its impact on romantic relationships.
  • Participants will be able to identify competing attachments.
  • Participants will learn ways of ending competing attachment and helping couples turn to each other to meet their attachment needs.
