Attachment and Our Relationships

    Our attachment style can impact those with mood disorders and strain relationships that may already be challenged.

    On Monday, October 17th 2016, New Directions is pleased to welcome back Dr. Brenda Wright, NCC to discuss the impact of attachment on our relationships.

    Dr. Wright will review attachment theory research while explaining the four basic parent-child interaction styles. Additionally, she will discuss the causes and consequences of insecure attachment and how it affects our relationships.

    Particular focus will be given to learning practical strategies to develop healthier intimate relationships regardless of one’s attachment style, diagnosis, or family of origin.

    Dr. Brenda Wright, NCC, is an Associate Professor and Coordinator of Practicum and Internship with Wilmington University in the Wilson Graduate Center. She holds a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and a Doctorate in Innovation and Leadership.
