Dr Gillies will bring focus on Attachment Theory or more specifically on how we as humans learn to attach to one another, first in our families and then with others around us. How do childhood attachment templates impact on our interactions with others in later life? How do such patterns of attachment impact on our relationships with God? She also considers the impact of trauma on our development and helps us to discern the nature of trauma.
