Never before has so much been expected from relationships in general — for partners to be emotional soul-mates, faithful sexual partners, perfect parents, and unwavering allies through life’s many storms. And never before have so many relationships crumbled under the weight of such heavy expectations.
So when couples seek our help, we can’t just sit back and let them rehash their repeated conflicts styles and bring out the worst in each other.

This workshop aims to provide further insight into the complex world of Emotional Attunement within relationships (not just romantic) as a fundamental social skill which describes our ability to fully process and move on from negative emotional events that can ultimately, if navigated well,  create stronger relationships. Bowlby’s Attachment theory together with the longitudinal studies conducted by couples researcher John Gottman have shown how emotional attunement can down regulate negative effects, help clients grasp their unhealthy conflict style then find positive ways forward and interrupt their destructive cycles. This presentation will look at 2 frameworks that Debra has developed as a detailed intervention devised to cultivate new insights and attunement helping couples and individuals to connect, respectfully through self and other awareness. The frameworks offered can assist laying a foundation to support developing emotional attunement where it’s missing that will help carry relationships through difficult times.
