I attended this one day workshop with Dr Richard Erskine on Monday 13th November in London and found it hugely informative in terms of discovering his latest thoughts on Attachment, in terms of there being an 'Isolated' relational pattern. This being people who have been 'over parented' and can be superficially social, but wll use emotional withdrawal to manage relationships. I can see the links to TA here, as it highlights the significance of having a controlling or critical parent who crucially would be misattuned to their child's sense of identity.
I also witnessed him undertake an intriguing live goldfish bowl therapy session too, with slightly weird undertones of the Carl Rogers and Gloria sessions!
