The resilience of mind and body

The development of the human brain, personality and body are determined, as we all know, not only by what happens in each individual’s life, but also by the way the brain and the body react to it. The resilience of the human mind and nervous system depend on innate qualities, but most importantly, on early attachment experiences that the infant makes in the developmental process. For the very first time in London, 11 of today’s most eminent experts and pioneers in the field of neuroscience, attachment and trauma will attend the fourth edition of the Attachment and Trauma Congress, to share their incredibly vast knowledge on this subject. More specifically, thanks to the valuable insights and cutting-edge approaches that each one of them will provide through lecture and panel discussion, participants will learn more about the interaction between experiences in life such as early trauma and attachment bonds and neurobiological processes. Furthermore, our speakers will give an in-depth overview of the different obstacles that prevent the body and mind from recovering from traumatic experiences and they will explore the most effective treatments and relational approaches in the field of psychotherapy to help patients who feel “imprisoned” by their psychological traumas and to support them in increasing their resilience and removing obstacles in the natural evolutionary pathway of their lives. Every year, more than 1000 participants from over 40 different countries have attended the past 3 editions of the Congress “Attachment and Trauma”, which many of them have defined “an historic event in the field of trauma-related psychotherapy”. The fourth edition of the Congress, “Attachment and Trauma - the Resilience of Mind and Body”, will take place at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, uniquely situated in the heart of London.
