CONGRESS ATTACHMENT AND TRAUMA
Effective clinical interventions and research
Over the past decades, the growing synergy between the innovative research methods developed through Neuroscience and their clinical application has significantly contributed to the extraordinary advances that have been made in the field of Psychotherapy. If, on the one side, neuroscientific research has become more and more sophisticated and precise, thus allowing experts to identify new functions and interactions between different areas of the human brain, clinical studies, on the other side, have been exploring both its fields of application and the most effective interventions to deal with psychopathology and enhance psychophysical well-being. The increasingly deeper knowledge about traumas and their effects on the human brain, behaviours, emotions, cognitions and social interactions is not only broadening the horizons of both research studies and clinical studies, but is also highlighting the crucial importance of conceiving the human being as a whole, as the result of the combination between life events, genetic predispositions, temperament, as well as cultural and educational heritage. At present, trauma-focused clinical interventions have the opportunity to consolidate and validate their effectiveness based on the most recent discoveries in the field of Neuroscience. From the intergenerational transmission of traumatic events described by Epigenetics to the brain modifications induced by repairing therapeutic interventions, the correlation between clinical and research studies is now opening the way to unexplored treatment outcomes, thus increasing the number of possibilities to cure psychopathology. This new edition of the well-known “Attachment and Trauma” Congress – “Attachment and Trauma: Effective Clinical Interventions and Research” – will offer the opportunity to integrate the most innovative aspects characterising research studies in the huge field of Neuroscience and the most effective clinical interventions, with the aim of understanding, in a moreand more clear and precise way, how traumas can affect the healthy development of both individuals and communities, as well as how to repair traumatic experiences in a deep, long-lasting way.
