Our philosophy of psychological dysfunction is rooted in attachment and trauma theory. Later you will hear about such treatment techniques as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) and EMDR however, when the secure bond between a parent and child is disrupted it creates insecure and anxious attachments.
These weakened attachments create opportunity for children to begin to have limiting beliefs about themselves and problematic behaviours and emotional dysregulation can occur. These limiting beliefs are irrational in nature, however, due to the egocentric nature of children the belief created is treated as if it is true. When there is damage to the attachment bond or when life events occur such as death, divorce, abandonment, poverty, etc. a child has then been exposed to trauma.
Disruptive events also create opportunity for limiting beliefs to form and to grow within the person to create maladaptive behaviours, thoughts and beliefs. These memories require processing in order to be stored in declarative memory where the emotionality around them is significantly reduced if not eliminated.
