What’s your style in relationships? Are you more independent, tend towards clinging or feel secure and balanced in close partnerships? Attachment theory is one way social psychology describes our internal working models of self, other, and interpersonal relationships.
These internal working models inform and impact the way we relate with each other and with our communities. In this workshop, Dr. Pollard will lead an exploration of these internal working models and consider how your own attachment style intersects with those of your students or those you lead. You will walk away with tools to better understand and improve the communities you lead and/or practice in.
Everybody is welcome to this highly informative talk.
