Attachment Styles and Trauma: Unraveling the PTSD Connection

Dr Sameh Younan, FRANZCP Psychiatrist

Medico Legal Specialists and the Navigator Group invite you to a compelling event on 20th June at 1pm AEST featuring Dr. Sameh Younan, a distinguished psychiatrist with over 12 years of experience in the public health system. Dr. Younan will delve into the intricate relationship between attachment styles and PTSD, offering profound insights drawn from his extensive expertise.

In this exclusive webinar, Dr. Younan will explore the transformative concepts of Systems Theory, Attachment Theory, and the Neuroscience of Emotion. He will highlight how these theories inform modern therapeutic practices, particularly in addressing trauma and attachment issues. Attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the dynamic interplay between early attachment bonds and mental health, showcasing the profound impact these relationships have on psychological well-being.

Dr. Younan’s approach is holistic, focusing on therapies that emphasise witnessing and validating patients’ experiences. This event promises to be an exceptional opportunity to learn about therapeutic applications such as Internal Family Systems Therapy, EMDR, and Emotion-Focused Therapies (EFT), among others. These methods have been proven effective in treating PTSD and other trauma-related disorders, leveraging the principles of memory reconsolidation, polyvagal theory, and brain integration.

Additionally, Dr. Younan’s work extends beyond individual therapy. He is committed to enhancing caregiver-child bonds through family therapies like Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Attachment-Based Family Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Family Therapy. His insights into how these therapies can reshape the memory circuits associated with attachment are groundbreaking.
