2.1 The Importance of Connection- Using attachment work as the framework for building emotion

Presenter: Erin Troup

Title: Licensed Professional Counselor

Organization: Sprout Center for Emotional Growth and Development, LLC

Workshop Description
This 90 Minute Breakout will further expand on the keynote in further depth by looking at the areas of the brain responsible for emotion regulation. Techniques to reach those areas will be discussed and presented so that participants will be able to use these skills in their work of teaching but also daily interactions with others. Participants will:

  • Define attachment and all parts that go into making secure or “good enough” attachment.
  • Recognize the importance of “connection before correction”
  • Understand and name the parts of the brain that are responsible for emotion regulation and recognize how to reach those areas in moments of disconnect.
