January Newsletter

As we begin 2021, we are still facing unprecedented times globally, but we have also begun the year with much needed hope for the future. As we enter further into the winter, we encourage you to take time for yourself but also to check-in with neighbors and those dear to you during a period of the year that may be challenging for some.  

We are happy to announce a preview of our new course for professionals launching later this month, The Expectant Therapist: A Modern and Practical Guide to Clinical Work During the Family Building Years, which you can learn more about below. We encourage you to share our trainings with your networks to help us equip professionals with valuable skills in supporting individuals and families during this time.

We wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy new year ahead.

Remember to keep up with Seleni events and announcements through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Seleni Clinician, Allison Peck, Participates in Ask the Therapist: What is Attachment Theory? 

On January 26, Seleni clinician, Allison Peck, will participate in a virtual discussion hosted by HRP Mamas, Ask the Therapist: What is Attachment Theory? 

Designed for expectant and new parents, or anyone interested in understanding the nature of the bond between child and caregiver, this session will consider John Bowlby's Attachment Theory. Considered the most important theory of psychology, this biological motivation to connect is inherent within us all, and carries into our intimate adult attachment relationships.
