Janina Fisher on Disorganised Attachment
Janina Fisher in Australia, February-March 2017
Janina Fisher and Pat Ogden, both highly acclaimed master clinicians, wrote Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment.
Janina Fisher PhD will be presenting a series of two-day workshops in which participants will learn how to assess and make sense of trauma-based symptoms and how to apply neurobiologically informed treatment techniques in clinical practice.
Offer a proven and successful treatment technique for trauma resolution.
Excellent and true. Great work and truly fascinating.
Disorganized attachment is ‘typically’ found in borderline conditions. While a workshop can articulate this and ‘better’ treatment options .. my worry is that in Australia the Health service’s ‘service’ response for say B.P.D. is very patchy and or itself like disorganized attachment meeting (at a Service level) disorganized containment. The services in Australia for more severe childhood trauma conditions are on another planet compared to better treatment services in both the USA and in U.K. Also there is less dedicated in-depth training in Australia for more ‘suffering versions’ of Attachment based ‘disorders’ , there is none really; both academically or clinically.
Also less than optimal secure-attachment ‘status’ .. affects 45-50% of the total general population – that alone presents a extraordinary challenge. The problem is so far beyond say a handful of clinicians who have the training and / or systems back up (i.e. Health system) to do very much. The final big picture issue that those with disorganized attachment (in its various forms) are often way too poor, and sometimes or often too unstable (risks wise) to be treated by ‘only’ private therapy practitioners. As there is almost no psychotherapy available in Australia’s public health services, we indeed, as I said, have only mainly disorganized (and neglectful) system responses to the tragedy of ‘individual’ disorganized attachment conditions.
