Why is Autoimmunity the most important thing
to study as a clinician?
5 Hours of Secure Attachment Parenting Training
Each week you will receive in-depth training on every area you need to know about autoimmune where you will learn:
- The two primary contributors to the autoimmune process
- Which conditions can have an autoimmune component, why all disease becomes autoimmune, and tests you can use to predict future autoimmune conditions
- A three-phase program for autoimmune patients, and healthy patients, which can prevent and reverse the autoimmune process
2. Six Weekly
LIVE Training Calls
Each week we’ll be together on a live webinar call to answer your questions. These will be online to review all of the information in the videos and extend the knowledge even further including talking about clinical applications for different types of therapists.

Module One: Establishing Secure and Sensible Attachment Parenting
We will discuss Secure Attachment, and how parents can create a sense of safety and security in their relationships with their children. Secure attachment is the home base from which children go out to deal with challenges in the world, and to which they return. This involves allowing the natural rhythms of connection and aloneness and of harmony, disharmony and repair. The focus of this module is small, doable steps to help parents have greater connection with their kids.
In Module 1 you will learn to:
- Move from the common feeling of failure or inadequacy as a parent to closer relationship with children and real understanding of their feelings and experiences.
- Find a healthy balance between close emotional attunement and independence so that both parents and kids can have their own space and alone-time.
- Step out of perfectionism and into the moment with your kids or clients.
- Support our kids through difficult social situations at school and be a safe harbor for them to come home to.
- Talk about difficult issues without overwhelming your kids or your clients.
- Practical techniques for repair, the skill that John Gottman says is responsible for 80% of sustainable well-being in a relationship.
Module Two: The Four Concentric Circles of Connection
In this Module, Kim lays out his Four Concentric Circles of Connection, a tool for speaking to parents about the effects of screens without arousing defensiveness or dismissal. The four circles, from outermost to innermost, are Nature & Play, Friendship, Family, and Self. We explore what parents want for their kids in each of these areas, and how screens can interfere.
In this Module you will learn:
- How to be pro-connection instead of anti-screen.
- How play develops socio-emotional and problem solving skills that are key to success later in life.
- How to convince parents and kids to limit screen time and make more time for family connection.
- How screen use can erode children’s core sense of self that would steer them away from risky behaviors like drinking, promiscuity and drug use.
- How to coach parents on dealing with grandparents who undercut family rules about screens.
- How time away from screens actually gives kids an edge in the 21st Century economy.
Module Three: Keeping Developmental Foundations Healthy in a Digital Age
This Module concerns the natural developmental processes that kids go through, and the effects screens can have on them. We talk about the norming process that begins at home and naturally progresses outward through school and peers at appropriate times, but can be circumvented by early social media exposure. We explore the difference between healthy alone time and painful loneliness, and the confusion between them that social media can create. We discuss the effects of screens on the dopamine system, and how this impacts discipline at home and at school. We discuss the continuous process of belonging that has been ritualized in traditional cultures through rites of passage. Finally, look at the research on grit and determination, their role in long-term success, and the way screen use affects them.
In this Module you will learn:
- The tremendous benefits of a predictable rhythm of simple household norming rituals.
- The skills kids need to have healthy connection and avoid the epidemic of chronic loneliness that affects 20 to 80% of teenagers and 40 to 50% of elders.
- The importance of healthy alone time to developing creativity, how screens can short-circuit this process, and how parents can support it.
- How the dopamine delivered by screen-based activities diminishes motivation for daily tasks like school work and housework
- How limiting screen use increases kids’ cooperativeness, receptivity to parents, and ability to work through problems.
- The three kinds of empathy, how screen use is contributing to an overall decline in all three, and the frightening implications of this trend.
Module Four: Neuroscience: Raising Resilient Children
We dive into the research on the neuroscience of Social Engagement. We look at the specific parental behaviors that lead to a feeling of safety and security for children, and how this sense of safety contributes to children’s own social skills. We discuss the effects that screens are having on this process. We go into detail about the way the social engagement system can shut down as a result of unresolved traumatic events, stress, or overstimulation. We lay out some approachable ways to start reducing stress and increasing safety and social engagement in the home.
In this Module you will learn:
- The neuroscience of how we experience and communicate safety with one another, and how we can use this to help our kids feel secure.
- How overstimulation creates sense of danger and reduces time in secure social engagement with parents.
- How to recognize the effects of constant overstimulation or stress in children, and the process for bringing them back to safety.
- The “undeclared war on childhood” in the modern world, and how to get your kids back.
- The beneficial effects on children’s behavior when parents put away their own devices to be with their kids.
- How parents can be the “emotional climate control” of their household
Module Five: Healing Early Wounds to Bridge Back to Secure Attachment
Building on the description of Secure Attachment in Module 1, we go into depth about the three main ways that children adapt to a lack of Secure Attachment in their family of origin: Avoidant Attachment, Anxious-Ambivalent Attachment, and Disorganized Attachment. Diane describes how to recognize these attachment adaptations in our clients, our children, and ourselves, and most importantly, how to build a bridge back to Secure Attachment from each attachment style. We also look at the ways digital devices complicate attachment between children and parents.
In this Module, you will learn:
- The characteristics of each Attachment Style.
- Parental behaviors that lead to these adaptations.
- Simple day-to-day habits to help parents who didn’t learn Secure Attachment from their own families to provide it for their children.
- How a two to three-degree trajectory shift makes a big difference over time.
- How screen use can exacerbate and even create unhealthy attachment patterns.
- How each Attachment Style might use digital devices to cope instead of moving toward Secure Attachment
- The relationship between Ambivalent Attachment and “friending” on social media.
