HOW DOES REATTACH WORK?
ReAttach Therapy basically consists of 6 main therapeutic components, which can be adjusted to a multitude of trans-diagnostic clinical presentations. In brief these are:
Proactive Arousal and Oxytocin regulation via sequenced tactile, auditive and visual stimulation of the PNS and CNS
Joint Attention: Creating optimal learning conditions
Multiple Sensory Processing
Social Cognitive Training of Coherent Concepts of Self, Significant Others, Affective Mentalisation and Relational Concepts
Improving connectivity within the default mode network (DMN) by demand of associative memory processing
Cognitive Bias Modification: optimising attachment and mentalisation capacity, processing and differentiating problematic schemata and concepts, adding new experiences and skills
