What are the key markers for when it is hard to distinguish cognitive and affective DMM-attachment patterns? Attachment behaviors can look the same between A and C patterns, but have quite different functions. Sometimes it is helpful to get a quick sense of the attachment pattern to determine information processing bias, and what kind of information is being excluded or emphasized to avoid being hooked. But it is also easy to be mistaken. For judges and legal professionals, what are the key markers they might want to be considering to avoid getting things backwards?
Join us for this no-host session to share your stories about what markers, behaviors, thought and speech patterns, and somatic representations were the key that helped you get unstuck, and those which you find are strong initial clues for you.
When do classic attachment behaviors fool us?
How to do you tell when a bright smile is hiding something painful or disarming negative affect? When is aggression related to compulsive caregiving, compliance or performance as opposed to being a part of a coercive self-protective strategy? When is docility and aggression-avoidance part of an attachment A-pattern vs. part of DMM C2/4/6/8 pattern? When is seduction part of an A5 socially promiscuous pattern vs a C4-C6 pattern? How does fear present differentially in A and C patterns? We will explore these and other questions about tricky DMM-attachment behaviors.
