How to Create a Bridge to Secure Attachment
for Even Your Most Challenging Clients

I want to share with you a powerful, life-changing training program that will help you identify your clients’ Attachment Style and their challenges. You will contribute to the creation of a thriving online community of practitioners who are sharing their experiences, challenges, and insights as they explore them in their practices.

We all want to be of highest service…and as therapists we are successful when we can understand what is going on inside our clients so that we can help them.

When you can identify the dominant Attachment patterns and when you have the knowledge and understanding about each adaptation, you are empowered to be highly successful in changing peoples’ lives.

In the upcoming course you will learn the exact language for each Attachment adaptation and the specific Corrective Experiences that can effectively and quickly heal early wounds. You will also learn specific techniques on how to model and reinforce Secure Attachment within yourself.

As you learn to nurture your own Attachment system, you will be able to develop trust and enhance connection in all your relationships.

Here are three core elements that make this course unique and will enrich your practice with invaluable resources: 
1. Specific language and approaches for each Attachment Adaptation
You know that you and your clients put the best intentions into trying to be ideal partners. However, often early biological wiring fuels automatic responses that create intense conflict and pain with the very ones we love most. Helping your clients heal childhood attachment wounds is ESSENTIAL for them to enjoy fulfilling relationships as adults now. The key for you as a therapist is to learn the Language of Attachment so you can create breakthrough experiences for them.

2. How to return to Secure Attachment
You will learn how to enable anyone to experience meaningful and fulfilling relationships in every area of their life by building bridges back to Secure Attachment. The majority of people did not experience Secure Attachment in their early childhood, and yet it is everyone’s innate capacity as well as a learnable skill. You will learn how to model it for your clients and teach them how to bring it forth in their life.

Nurturing the attachment system helps us in ALL AREAS of our life: parenting, personal relationships, coaching, and even in business. By helping others return to Secure Attachment, your work will create ripples out into the world.

3. The latest research and insights from renowned experts
As part of the program, you will be listening to experts from various fields such as neuroscience, relationship therapy, and parenting work. This will help “connect the dots” of the many specialties that are part of this multidimensional landscape of learning models. This work continues to expand, so it is important to keep adding on to what you already know…this is the path of mastery in any discipline.  

This program includes online video training and five weekly webinars. We will be talking about case studies and working together to expand our knowledge and professional skills. There is also a special sixth week that you can read about below. As a member of the program, you can download and keep all of this material forever.

I look forward to being with you during the program and after. I hope you find this course useful and I thank you for being part of this growing community.

Securely yours, 
Diane Poole Heller, PhD

P.S. We are going to start the program very soon after we release it for enrollment, so I encourage you to get on board while it is still open and spaces are available.

What if you could cut through all the theory to quickly identify the most targeted, specific Corrective Experiences to help your clients heal?
Imagine having the confidence and “therapeutic radar” to recognize subtle verbal and somatic clues… mastering the language that can help you bring your clients back to Secure Attachment.

This is the promise: by learning this work, you can help your clients move into deeper and more intimate relationships.

This training program will provide a comprehensive understanding of the four Attachment Styles and protocols from the latest research to foster healthy outcomes and real transformation in your clients’ relationships.

What is even more exciting is that you can teach your clients to understand their own Attachment Styles as well as the Styles of their loved ones. In doing so, you will be providing them with practical tools and a map to successfully navigate ALL of their relationships.
Why learning the Language of Attachment is a foundational skill for all relationships...
When you understand early Attachment Styles in a healthy, safe environment, the original imprints that are the foundation of the self-protective ego structure can be healed.

You can then be more in contact with your intrinsic core intactness. You embody your Authentic Self and you can deeply enjoy fulfilling relationships.

In this comprehensive training, you will learn the distinctive hallmarks of each of the four basic Attachment Styles:
1. Secure
2. Ambivalent/Preoccupied
3. Avoidant/Dismissive
4. Disorganized/Disoriented

We will be looking at case studies and illustrating how each style impacts our clients’ adult relationships later in life.

From this training, you will gain a clear understanding of practical applications of somatic techniques and Corrective Experiences to alleviate stuck Attachment patterns.

As you explore this material and your own Attachment history, you will discover how to help your clients heal this important part of our human journey.
A Unique Interactive Course for  Attachment Style and Relational Trauma Mastery
Wisdom - Community - Service

In my own life, I've gone through extreme trauma several times and trained thousands of therapists in both Attachment and trauma. Each interaction, each teaching and each new case study adds to my understanding.

Each new piece builds on everything I have learned…AND the real magic happens when we share what we learn with others.

If we can share what we have learned through working with clients, then that knowledge can benefit everyone because all of life works in patterns.
I believe that in community we are much stronger than as individuals working alone. That is one of the major reasons WHY I created the program – to connect people around the world who are working with this powerful Attachment and Relational Trauma approach. When we work with it and improve it and share it, we are leveraging our collective Wisdom! We are improving the world, one individual at a time… and this ripples out in waves to affect couples, families, and entire communities.

I want to serve those engaged in this work. I want to share as many case studies and examples as possible. As a member of the program, you’ll also be able to download all materials so you can access them FOREVER.

Let me tell you what is in the program now…we are going to open up enrollment for a limited time because we are going to get the first group started soon. I have also added in bonuses for those who join me now...
"Dr. Heller is a superb therapist and teacher. She has the ability to comprehend complex psychological ideas, see underlying patterns and deep implications, and then organize the information in an easily understood, warm-hearted way. I highly recommend her as a veritable fountain of knowledge in the fields of trauma resolution, attachment re-patterning and body-centered psychotherapy."

Experience the Breakthrough Nature of Attachment  in Your Therapy Practice and Life
Imagine a young boy (we’ll call him John) who one day was told that he was going to a day camp, but instead was dropped off at an orphanage. No warning was provided for this terrible abandonment. The teenage mother had been left by the boy’s father, and without financial resources, simply could not cope.

John originally came to me seeking treatment for panic attacks related to a fear of flying. Unfortunately, flying was required weekly for his corporate job.

By tracking his verbal and body responses, I was able to see that the “fear of flying” was really a window into a much more complex history of Disorganized Attachment.

We were able to discover his fear of flying was really connected to an early childhood impulse to jump off a high-rise building when visiting his mother. By creating a safe relational field with containment in our therapy sessions, he was able to process his anger and helplessness related to his abandoning parents.  He was gradually free of anxiety medication, and no longer afraid to fly.

He had also developed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder – he used to tap the light switch several times before leaving a room. This disorder may have been a masked attempt to gain control from a childhood with no control. We worked on repairing trust in the therapy sessions, introducing Corrective Experiences, such as giving voice to his anger towards his parents, and “installing a Competent Protector,” represented by his Grandfather – who had died before he could rescue him – and kind foster parents, emphasizing their caring behaviors.

He was trapped in being the “good boy,” trying not to lose his attachment figures again. Dealing with negative emotions in an environment that was accepting and containing was critical (this is an element of Secure Attachment).

Once trust was established in the therapy session, his obsessive-compulsive behaviors disappeared. Over time, with a new foundation of Secure Attachment, he was able to repair his relationship with his wife, which was on the brink of divorce. He now gives talks to social work organizations on how to improve services and create a more securely attached environment for their young population.

Terry Real, LICSW
Telling the Truth With Love
Most of us were trained to believe that when it comes to having clients face the really difficult truths in their lives, especially their own obnoxious, selfish, or self-defeating behavior, we need to be extremely careful. In contrast, this workshop presents Relationship Life Therapy (RLT), an approach based on the premise that it’s disrespectful to clients to not let them in on the ways they keep shooting themselves in the foot by how they deal with their relationships. In addition to learning how to present the truth of what you see happening in a relationship, you will learn how to coach couples to proactively go for what they want, speak to repair, listen with empathy, respond with generosity, and take the time to cherish each other.

Terry Real is the bestselling author of I Don't Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression, the straight-talking How Can I Get Through to You? Reconnecting Men and Women, and most recently The New Rules of Marriage: What You Need to Make Love Work. He founded the Relational Life Institute, offering workshops for couples, individuals, and parents as well as a professional training program for clinicians. Terry has been called "the most innovative voice in thinking about and treating men and their relationships in the world today."
Stan Tatkin, Psy.D., MFT
Does Your Relationship Come First? The Secrets of Secure-Functioning Relationships
This three-hour presentation will focus on what we know about human relationships particularly those of a romantic nature. We will discuss what is true about the human animal in terms of its psychobiological need to pair bond for safety and security. Understanding the human brain and nervous system is one of the best way to understand how relationships work and don’t work and what you can do to make your relationships deeply fulfilling and lasting.

Stan Tatkin is a clinician, researcher, teacher, and developer of A Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy® (PACT). He and his wife, Tracey Boldemann-Tatkin, developed the PACT Institute for the purpose of training other psychotherapists to use this method in their clinical practice. In addition, Dr. Tatkin is an assistant clinical professor at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, Department of Family Medicine. More recently, his interests turned to psycho-neurobiological theories of human relationship, and to integrating principles of early mother-infant attachment with principles of adult romantic relationships.

What Therapists, Leaders, and Coaches are Saying:
"Diane's work has enabled us to work in Attachment with skill, kindness, and understanding. When clients experience it, they often say, "This is the work I have been waiting for." Diane has given us a beautiful way to heal the deep, early patterns of our clients and ourselves."
- Christina Morrow, Cranial Sacral Bodyworker, SEP, from CT

"It has helped me understand my clients and know what to do when there are breaches in attunement. Invaluable for working with Trauma, Addiction, and Axis II clients"
- Sarah Kelder, Chicago, IL
"The Attachment Mastery program helped me frame therapeutic work within an individual but all the way into large systems-the organization. All the world over we are affected by our abilities and disabilities to connect. This work is how to heal and reform corrections at whatever level, within ourselves, families, and workplaces, so we can be our best, solo or together." 
- Ann Weatherley, Boulder, CO 

"Thank you for a wonderful training. I learned so much and am already digesting and integrating the information you shared with us. As I had mentioned to you, I did my graduate research on Attachment and adult mother/daughter relationship (levels of self-esteem and depression) many years ago at NYU. Now after working as a clinician for over a decade and having attended the 3 days, it all makes so much more sense. I so appreciate both the theory and the practice. You demonstrated and taught us so much that will help facilitate repair and re-orientation. I highly respect your work. It obviously reflects years of clinical foundation, experience and self-healing. The Attachment wounds/repair information is truly the foundation and as you said the paydirt of our work. Having the opportunity to watch you in the demonstrations accompanied by the biofeedback was truly astonishing."-P. Atkinson, LCSW-R, NY
"Your last line, for me, was a kernel of the whole weekend in terms of what I came to know in my body. 'Own your light and don’t project it out – and that is even harder.' Thank you again."- S. Gross
"I feel it would be out of integrity to continue my work without the knowledge I acquired from Diane. She is masterful at teaching us how to transform our clients' lives and influence our own relationships toward more fulfillment. I see the power of this work daily through the changes in my clients and my own relationships. Everyone interested in deeper connection and a gentle path toward healing should enroll now!"
- Alicen Halquist LPC, SEP, ACA, Boulder CO
