Adult Trauma and Recovery: advances in Social Neuroscience and Attachment Research

Adult Trauma and Recovery: advances in Social Neuroscience and Attachment Research

This presentation will outline recent innovative neuroimaging and experimental research that demonstrate the role of attachments in modulating the experience of social or physical pain, stress and emotion processing. Evidence of how individual differences in attachment styles moderate PTSD mechanisms will also be discussed. Understanding the mechanisms underpinning attachments will provide new evidence for how these natural coping systems might be harnessed to assist in the recovery of refugees following severe trauma exposure.
