Workshop On Intimacy

Berlin
Hobrechtstraße 66 Berlin, 12047

Description

What drives us to seek intimacy? How do we build and maintain it? Why do we often lose it? We will explore these issues in depth in a workshop based on John Bowlby’s attachment theory. 

According to attachment theory, an infant's proximity to the caregiver is essential for healthy development, and the loss of such proximity is a cause for distress that interferes with later life explorations as the child matures. Mary Ainsworth describes three main patterns of reaction to separation from and reunions with the caregiver. These reactions develop an internal model of self and others that are referred to as 'attachment style'. Later researchers adopted Ainsworth’s three-category typology as a framework for conceptualizing individual differences in the ways adults think, feel, and behave in romantic relationships. In adolescence and adulthood, a person finds potential comforters and attachment figures, often in close friends and romantic partners. A person's attachment style plays a great role in one’s ability to make and maintain meaningful relationships. During the search for meaningful relationships, a person may be lonely at times; loneliness is especially common in early adulthood, when many people are not yet confident about their attachment relationships outside the family home. 

This workshop consists of four group meetings in which we will explore the nature of adult romantic relationships from an attachment theory perspective. Each meeting will consist of a theoretical introduction in the form of a thirty-minute presentation, followed by an opportunity for exploration and sharing of thoughts, feelings, and experiences. 

Mondays (October 9, 16, 23, 30), 18:30 – 20:00
