Case Consultation Group
Three Pillars and Ideal Parent Figure (IPF) Therapy

A Deep Exploration

As a trauma specialist often working in the areas of CPTSD and attachment traumas, I was thrilled to find Dr. Zack as both a therapist and trainer in the Three Pillars therapy and the Ideal Parent Figure IPF protocol. Zack offers detailed and knowledgeable discussion of attachment theory, screening methods and the skillful delivery of the IPF protocol. His teachings are clear and delivered in a grounded and present manner. I highly recommend him as a therapist, supervisor and trainer.

Dr. Zack Bein, the Founder of The Adult Attachment Program, will be continuing his Case Consultation Series in Three Pillars Therapy 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 begin to do so.  This group will be done in a series of 5 sessions, each costing $85 and lasting 120 minutes in length. The fee for all 5 sessions in the series will be collected prior to the group commencing. The group will consist of 30 or so minutes of didactic presentation on a three pillars topic, followed by case presentations, consultation, and supervision.  It is common for people to have to miss at least 1 group, so each session is fully recorded for those that have to miss a week.  This group is ideal for clinicians (social workers, MFTs, coaches, psychologists, psychiatrists, interns) who already have some experience with the 3 Pillars model and wish to refine their knowledge and skill with the most up-to-date information including the move to the term, Integrative Attachment Therapy (IAT)

Zack began his journey through Adult Attachment Theory after her graduated from his doctoral program in Psychology.  He was exposed to Dan Brown, PhD, the co-creator of the treatment, and began to study closely with Dan for several years.  He was a staple in Dan’s “Masterclass” for years before Dan sadly passed.  Subsequent to that, Zack began to work closely with Harvard Psychologist David Elliott, Ph.D.  Zack has been involved in a consultation and supervision group with David for the past 2 years.  Additionally, he designed a Level I Intro to Adult Attachment Theory which, as of today, 176 students have taken and completed.  He presents regularly to treatment centers, inpatients, and training facilities on the Three Pillar model of healing attachment disturbances in adults.  Dr. Zack has done thousands of hours of attachment healing work.  Zack is also the sole author of an upcoming chapter in “Clinical Applications of the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI)” where he details how to use the findings of the patient’s AAI to directly inform the 3 pillar work.
