Creating the Attachment Relationship that Leads to Empathy Work

Relationships are the reflection of our early interactions with our caretakers and they mark the way we face problems and adversity throughout our life. In JUCONI Mexico we consider that the healing of trauma begins with the healing of relationships. In the same way, how our first interaction with a family develops will mark the whole therapeutic process. In this workshop we will show the process followed in the first session with a family, beginning the therapeutic work. We will deal with the main characteristics needed to be able to create empathy with the family and initiate a relationship of strong attachment.
