Attachment Based Therapy FAQ

Some of our most frequently asked questions about Attachment Disorders. 

Attachment Based Therapy focuses on the foundation of how we form relationships, and how this begins with the relationship we have with our caregivers during infantry. Over time, the way humans have connected hasn't changed, we still crave human touch and social connection. Since ancient times, we've lived in community settings, as the saying goes "taking a village to raise a child". Nuclear families are relatively new, and have created new social dynamics. In modern times, some people may crave that social connection and community but find it painful.

The Foundational belief of ABFT therapy is that humans want to attach and feel validated, having a healthier reaction to our environment.
ABFT therapy attempts to rebuild how we create and maintain relationships in a healthier way using psychotherapy and utilizing therapist and client relationship to solidify broken bonds, helping our clients feel heard and seen and how to better understand that the "Flight or fight" response we feel is connected to lack of human attachment, or the feeling of support.  
Being able to create and maintain healthy relationships can impact both our physical and mental wellbeing. Unhealthy relationships cause trauma and can lead to long-term mental health issues, while healthy relationships create a feeling of trust, security, and can lead to healthier habits. Having the feeling of support can lead to being better able to manage and cope with life stressors.
