Idealized Parent Figure (IPF) Protocol Work Group
We're very pleased to announce a new work group developed with Daniel P. Brown to train professionals interested in helping students/mentees/patients address their attachment disturbances. Open to The Meaningful Life and Meditation Interventions for the Addiction Process mentors and facilitators, and licensed therapists and psychiatrists, the work group will start with direct engagement in the IPF protocol with George Haas in dialogue with Daniel P. Brown.
Psychology Today described Dr. Brown's groundbreaking text on the subject, Attachment Disturbances in Adults: Treatment for Comprehensive Repair, as a "major breakthrough in treatment." "It should be required reading by every mental health clinician and provider as a basis of treatment. If it were, there would be more positive treatment results for a wide variety of mental health issues."
This marks a major development in George Haas's own lifelong work connecting secular Buddhist meditation and modern attachment theory.
