Webinar: The Power of Connection- Attachment Theory and the Practice of Restorative Justice

Where United States

Duration 1 hour 30 minutes

Annmarie Early, professor of counseling in the Master of Arts in Counseling program, will speak on The Power of Connection: Attachment Theory and the Practice of Restorative Justice. Our understanding of what it means to be human is undergoing rapid change. We are learning that humans use emotion and patterns of connection and disconnection to navigate the world. Discoveries from neuroscience and research from attachment theory have paved the way for more effective practitioner intervention in situations of conflict. These discoveries both shift and sharpen our understanding of how change happens and are crucial for effective intervention in situations of conflict and restoration. This webinar will:

  • Delineate basic attachment processes relevant to situations of conflict and restorative justice.
  • Explore the implications of social baseline theory and activation of the social engagement system for human relating.
  • Provide a lens for assessing key moments of rupture and repair.
  • Describe the importance of attending to the implicit in order to facilitate resonance and attunement.
  • Introduce “Affect Narratives” as an embodied pathway for creating personal and relational transformation.

Howard Zehr will facilitate the webinar.

This webinar is part of the Spring 2014 series of Real World Restorative Justice Webinars, a project of the Zehr Institute for Restorative Justice.
