What everyone should know about attachment styles…

As infants, we are wholly dependent on a parent or primary caregiver to survive. Instinctive behaviors—or attachment behaviors—crying for example, help us communicate what we need.

As children grow, explore and learn to relate to others, a secure base of attachment is important for safety, stress, regulation, adaptability and resilience. But what happens when a parent or caregiver is mis-attuned with what a child needs…even unconsciously?

When we don’t get the security we need, we quickly learn to adapt in order to survive. In attachment theory, these adaptations are called insecure attachment styles, or the different ways we interact and behave in relationships.

It’s important to remember that insecure attachment isn’t inherently bad. An adaptation is simply the tool your brain and body utilize as a response to less-than-ideal conditions.

Even though you may not be conscious of how these responses first developed, these adaptations often continue to serve as a working model for our adult relationships. In other words, how our needs are met, or not met, can shape how we interact with others as adults.

When we seek intimacy or connection as adults, we seek a return to secure attachment. The paradox is that we often find ourselves drawn to a partner or significant other who reinforces or recreates the emotional climate of our childhood.

A way for you to help yourself and others

Does it seem that secure attachment is easier for some people than others? What happens when we’re wired to connect, but our attachment style won’t let us?

Our attachment style is often a ‘go to,’ or blueprint, for how we communicate in an adult relationship. Yet, so much of attachment is unconscious…it can even feel like a mystery…where does it come from, how did it happen, why do I react the way I do? Why did I say what I did when I didn’t mean it?

Considering its complexity and implications, it’s surprising that the subject of attachment is often under-represented in graduate and professional training.

Too often, attachment only comes to the forefront after unhealthy behavior patterns have significantly affected our health and well-being, or caused irreparable harm to someone we love.

The bottom line is, we all deserve secure attachment. It’s truly possible to heal from early childhood emotional wounds, so that we create deep and lasting intimate relationship patterns.

By understanding attachment history and the patterns of how we think, feel and act in our relationships, we give ourselves the gift of inner security.

What if you could draw from Attachment Theory to promote healing and strengthen relationships?

Imagine a client sitting across from you in your office, talking about the recent breakup of yet another relationship. They’re emotional. You hear it in their voice.

They clearly crave the connection and intimacy of a close relationship, yet they’re afraid to trust themselves and others…including you.

What your clients can’t understand is, why does this happen over and over?

Why are they caught up in the same patterns and behaviors, no matter what partner—or relationship—they are in?

As their therapist, you can see what’s going on. But seeing it isn’t enough. Do you know why your clients react the way they do?

Could some corrective exercises or interventions be more effective than others? And how does your own communication style promote or interfere with helping others heal?

You know that there must be a better way to help people—to keep them feeling safe and honors the way they need to be heard.

Research suggests that as much as 90% of conflict and issues that arise in adult relationships can be traced back to early attachment experiences.

Not only does attachment theory give us a framework to understand how the past has shaped our present relationships, it gives us an approach to use to be able to do something about it.

All of us are capable of repairing broken connections. But our clients can’t do it alone, because, as humans, we’re not wired to heal in isolation.

The good news is that Diane’s powerful, proven and pragmatic Dynamic Attachment Re-patterning experience (DARe) gives you the concrete tools to help your clients change deep-rooted patterns and bring couples into a healthy, secure way of relating to each other.

When you understand the fundamental differences between secure and insecure attachment styles, it’s much easier to address old emotional wounds—so you can help yourself or clients break out of unhealthy patterns once and for all—freeing them to experience the joy, intimacy and connection they need and deserve.

The power of attachment theory is that it can be applied to any type of relationship…romantic partnership, parent-child dynamic, friendship or even a work relationship.
  • You can heal broken connections and help clients restore their sense of wholeness.
  • You can integrate diverse experiences to bring together all the parts that feel so broken and fragmented.
  • You can help people emerge from incredible loss, fear and powerlessness and empower them to resiliency.
  • You can use the language of attachment to help build a bridge that helps clients connect to other people they care about.
  • You can create a safe environment in your therapy sessions that allows people to trust, open up and make real progress.
  • You can move people beyond early traumatic experiences and help them return to secure attachment, so they can form deep and lasting intimate relationships.
You can do all this using a proven framework that, not only improves your clinical confidence, but gives you effective exercises and interventions you can use in a therapeutic setting immediately.

Here’s What’s In The Training Curriculum
MODULE 1: March 31, 2021 @ 11 am MT
Secure Attachment

Attachment to a primary caregiver is the foundation of all future relationships. When there is secure attachment, you learn how to trust others, ask for what you need and respond emotionally.

In this module, we explore how early life experiences—trauma, brain, social and emotional development—set the blueprint for our lifelong attachment patterns and beliefs.

We’ll explore concrete strategies to strengthen our capacity for secure attachment and begin healing relational wounds.

  • Learn how attachment systems evolved to keep us safe and why insecure attachment serves an inherent, biological purpose.
  • Gain a deeper understanding on how adverse childhood events, including trauma, neglect and abuse inhibit secure attachment.
  • Understand that attachment patterns established during early childhood aren’t a given and can be reversed in adulthood.
  • You’ll see how clinicians can create a sense of safety and help shift clients out of insecure attachment towards secure attachment with attunement, integrity and compassion.
  • Learn which types of clinical interventions and corrective exercises help heal underlying early childhood attachment wounds and nourish a healthy attachment system.
MODULE 2: April 7, 2021 @ 11 am MT
Avoidant Attachment

People with avoidant attachment struggle to connect in relationships because they were consistently ignored, rejected or punished for attachment-seeking behavior in their earliest interactions with their primary caregivers.

In this module, we explore avoidant attachment patterns in depth—from how the adaptation first develops, to relationship behaviors, and which corrective exercises and experiences encourage a return to secure attachment..

  • Learn how to recognize and identify avoidant attachment behaviors and patterns in adult relationships.
  • Discover how to help the avoidant adaptation acknowledge pain associated with adverse childhood events (ACEs) without triggering old emotional wounds.
  • Confidently recognize signs of secure attachment in the avoidant adaptation so you can highlight and emphasize the embodiment to deepen those moments and accelerate healing.
  • You’ll learn which corrective experiences re-orient avoidant clients back toward secure attachment by helping them restore brain balance between their left/right hemispheres.
  • See actual cases and exercises in action, so you can help reconnect avoidant clients with their bodies and the world around them to facilitate healing.
MODULE 3: April 14, 2021 @ 11 am MT
Ambivalent Attachment

Ambivalent attachment adaptation develops in early childhood environments where caregivers respond inconsistently to attachment-seeking behavior, creating a lifelong sense of doubt, insecurity and longing for connection.

In this module, we explore ambivalent attachment patterns—paying special attention to mindfulness, self-orientation and embodiment exercises that teach the ambivalent to connect with others and still maintain a sense of self.

  • Learn how to recognize and identify ambivalent attachment behaviors and patterns in adult relationships.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of how the ambivalent adaptation first develops and how their early years condition them to anticipate disappointment in relationships.
  • Help ambivalent-preoccupied clients recognize and receive their partners’ affection so they don’t feel unloved.
  • Recognize and enhance the strengths that the ambivalent attachment adaptation brings to the relationship.
  • Learn corrective exercises and interventions that allow the ambivalent adaptation to develop a sense of self, so they become more attuned to their own needs and desires.
MODULE 4: April 21, 2021 @ 11 am MT
Disorganized Attachment

Disorganized attachment adaptation develops in early childhood environments when primary caregivers engage in scary, threatening or abusive behaviors. Children cannot reconcile their simultaneous drive to attach to and  flee from their caregivers, becoming incredibly dysregulated.

In this module, we explore disorganized attachment patterns—paying special attention to the “immobility response” that tends to re-emerge when the attachment system gets re-activated in adult relationships.

  • Uncover the origin of disorganized attachment adaptation and learn to recognize patterns of behavior in adult relationships.
  • Identify why some people have inexplicable fear responses toward romantic partners as intimacy deepens.
  • Help clients distinguish between their present relationships and when they’re being triggered by past experiences.
  • Know exactly how to intervene when closeness triggers clients into fear or disconnect.
  • Learn specific interventions that help the disorganized feel grounded, safe and protected—and guide them to secure attachment without triggering self-defense or self-protection.
MODULE 5: April 28, 2021 @ 11 am MT
Grief and Loss

Given the ongoing challenges of our current pandemic, many of us are working through (or helping clients with) the difficult journey of grief and loss.

In times of trauma or loss—especially when we’re faced with isolation—we recognize that the attachment system becomes fully activated, which means whatever attachment style we have, becomes our “go-to” to help us cope with adversity.

In this module, we explore loss from an attachment perspective, so we can better help people move beyond their grief and renew healing through more healthy, secure attachments.

  • Learn how old attachment wounds become activated as a result of trauma, grief and loss.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the entire bereavement process, including Complicated Bereavement.
  • Recognize and identify patterns and concerns that each of the attachment adaptations might be experiencing.
  • How to work with some of the “tough spots” related to grief and loss, particularly arousal spikes.
  • Learn a variety of techniques that help clients normalize the grief process—so they can honor the loss, practice self-care, metabolize grief and reach out for support when needed.
MODULE 6: May 5, 2021 @ 11 am MT
Integrations and Case Consults

Once you have all the fundamental knowledge, you’re ready to incorporate new skills, techniques and interventions to help yourself or your clients build healthier relationships.

At the start of the program, you’ll have the chance to submit actual client scenarios for this live, 90-minute discussion—where Dr. Heller will demonstrate specific, attachment-based clinical interventions in real time.

  • Discuss real-world client cases involving attachment issues and adaptations in adult individuals and couples.
  • Learn directly from Dr. Heller, as she demonstrates how to integrate and apply clinical interventions discussed throughout the course.
  • Grow confidence by practicing clinical skills and corrective exercises in a safe and supportive private setting.
  • Ask questions, share insights and get the feedback you need to turn theoretical insights learned throughout the course into practical help and healing for any important relationship.

“I just can’t say enough about the training. I felt so safe in this learning environment—it allowed me to play with Attachment Theory, so I could really develop my skills. It also brought a new level of understanding about myself and how I interact with others, which was always kind of a mystery. I knew how I responded to or felt internally about other people before—but I never quite understood the dynamics of it until now.”

“One thing that I really appreciated about this training was that it did a really comprehensive job of talking about our different attachment styles and helping us understand them. Then, we took it one step further…with real, practical ways to teach it to our clients, not just from the top-down, but also to understand attachment and really grow from the bottom-up. That gave me a much richer experience than I’d known before.”
Loren R., Waynesville, NC

“Classes with Diane are so rich and full. She presents the material so that anyone can “get it” and it doesn’t make the client wrong—or that something’s “wrong” with them. Attachment work has a very thorough, deep and profound way of helping someone transform whatever trauma they may be carrying.”

Frequently Asked Questions
How can we help you decide?
Do I need to be a therapist to be in this program?

You do not. While this program is designed primarily to provide both novice and experienced practitioners with skills, strategies and corrective exercises that can be applied in a clinical setting, we’ve found that anyone who would like to better understand attachment theory and the origins of attachment styles can benefit from this course.

In this program, you’ll get powerful insights and skills that can be used to improve communication, deepen intimacy and heal early attachment wounds for any relationship.

Can I access the training materials once the course is over?

Of course! All of our training programs and courses include lifetime access to ALL training materials, including video and audio recordings, transcripts, worksheets, exercises, demos and bonuses too.

The only thing you cannot download, are client demos—because we need to honor and respect client confidentiality.

What is the DARe Certificate program?

DARe stands for Dynamic Attachment Re-patterning experience, a set of groundbreaking somatic adult attachment workshop for therapists and other mental health practitioners who want to learn essential skills to help their clients develop stronger and more secure attachment.

The DARe Certificate Program requires you to complete:

  • DARe training modules 1, 2, 3, 4—in which you learn a unique blend of somatic experiencing techniques, modalities for treating attachment adaptation injury, neuroscience and spiritual perspectives
  • Case consultations with an approved DARe provider
  • Personal sessions with an Approved DARe provider

In order to complete the program and receive a certificate, you must also complete a review with Dr. Heller or approved DARe provider—to demonstrate a high level of understanding of the DARe attachment work and somatic methods and skills, as well as the ability to integrate exercises and interventions into your practice.

If you wish to learn more about the DARe Certificate Program, please visit our website at www.dianepooleheller.com.

Is this online training the same as the DARe 1 program?

Yes. Fundamentals of Attachment Styles is an online, self-paced course within the Attachment & Trauma Mastery Program, which includes additional bonus resource material and weekly live calls with Dr. Heller. It is the equivalent of DARe1 (our intensive 3-day training) and also satisfies the prerequisite for any other DARe training.

DARe is our signature certificate program, which consists of four, progressive workshop modules: DARe 1, DARe 2, DARe 3, and DARe 4. DARe 1 is the foundational course on Secure and Insecure Attachment Adaptations and Patterning.

Will there be any opportunities to ask Dr. Heller questions?

Yes, we’ve structured this program in such a way so that we don’t just tell you about theoretical concepts—we show you how to apply them.

You’ll be able to watch actual client demo videos and participate in LIVE Q&A sessions, where Dr. Heller answers your specific questions, reviews case consults and gives you practical tips and techniques you can use integrate into your every day practice immediately.

How much time will I need to spend on this program every week?

The time most people spend varies because of individual learning styles and preferences. Most of our students tell us they spend an average of 2-3 hours per module/week, including the LIVE Q&A sessions.

This course is structured so that everyone can move at their own pace—at the very least, we encourage you to join us for the interactive sessions, case consults and demos, so you get a chance to ask questions from Dr. Heller live.

What if I can’t show up live for all the training calls?

We would love to have you join each session live, but if you are unable to do so, all our sessions and training calls (including the Q&A) are recorded, so you can still receive all the information and coaching you need.

Additionally, the program module materials are yours to download and keep in your professional reference library. The only thing you cannot download, are client demos—because we need to honor and respect client confidentiality.
