I've been working with Dr. Zach and his Adult Attachment Program for the past 9 months and my attachment insecurity, sense of self, and overall mental health has been transformed! When I came into the program I had daily attachment anxiety and most of my energy was being used just to keep my anxieties at bay. And without a strong sense of self, I was also struggling to find a sense of meaningful direction in life - to know who I am and what I want. Although I'm not done with the work yet, I can typically calm attachment anxieties or disrupting states of mind quickly. And my sense of self has developed significantly to the point where I have a strong direction in life and I'm excited about the training I'm doing now to help others. I highly recommend Ideal Parent Figures coaching, Dr. Zach, and the Adult Attachment Program!

3 Pillars Case Conceptualization and Supervision Group (class on hold)
Dr. Zack Bein, the Founder of The Adult Attachment Program, has begun a Case Consultation & Supervision Group in Three Pillars Therapy (soon to be called Integrative Attachment Therapy (IAT)) and Ideal Parent Figure (IPF) imagery! This class is in response to the numerous calls for further investigation into the Three Pillar Model for healing attachment disturbances in adults; famously introduced in the Dan Brown and David Elliott text, “Healing Attachment Disturbances in Adults.” This group will be open to anyone that is either actively working with clients or patients with the three pillars model and IPF, or that hopes to learn the model so that they can begin to use it. This group started as a series of 5 sessions, but due to the high demand for ongoing supervision in this area, we have decided to make it ongoing. The group will now be meeting twice a month on Thursday, from 1 pm to 3 pm pacific time. Most classes consist of some period of teaching, a small break, and then case presentations and supervision. You now have two options for the fee. You could buy a series of 5 sessions for a total of $425 ($85 a group). The fee would be collected up front. Or, you can now elect to “drop in” for one group at a time for a fee of $95.
This group is ideal for clinicians (social workers, MFTs, coaches, psychologists, psychiatrists, interns) who wish to learn about the three pillar method or refine their knowledge and skill.
The first course in this series is self-paced and online. This is an introduction to Adult Attachment Theory and its different manifestations in the realm of parenting, relationships, and also clinically. There are over 2 hours of video presentations, 7 lectures, 3 guided meditations, 7 articles, & other supplemental publications and online material in support of your learning.

- Developed by Brown and Elliot (2016) the Three Pillars model for healing attachment disturbances in adults has become quite popular amongst clinicians. This model was intended to offer a comprehensive way to resolve the structural core of attachment insecurity by restructuring and re-mapping the internal working model of attachment in clients using imagined ideal parent figures, guided by the five conditions that create secure attachment (now the 3rd pillar). Often by this process alone, the client begins strengthening several developmental capacities that were impeded by the insecure upbringing (Elliot, 2021). Two specific capacities that are often not nurtured in children with insecure attachment styles are the development of metacognitive capacity (2nd pillar) and enhancing collaborative abilities (1st pillar). This course will explain the theory and practice of Three Pillars therapy and IPF using videos, powerpoint presentations, articles, and supplemental readings and exercises.
