In May, Patricia O'Rourke visited us from Adelaide to run a workshop titled "Working Relationally". 

Looking through the lens of how babies and infants form attachment with their primary caregivers, we explored how the nature of these early relationships effect our capacity for and style of being in relationship with others. 

Patricia shared lots of insights from her experience working with children in the child protection system and the inter-generational nature of relational trauma. 

Some great relational work and social atom repair was done between group members as we explored how the effects of our default attachment styles flow through into our role systems and behaviour patters as adults.

Our group included Jen Barnett who traveled up from Canberra to be with us, and Sue Tsigaros who we welcomed back after an absence of a few years.
