Adult Attachment Disorder
Think you might be affected by adult attachment disorder? STAR retreats can help.
Adult attachment disorder stems from neglect or abuse—the way we were treated—early in our lives. We know that the quality of our earliest relationships with our caregivers—whether you felt seen, valued, and your needs were met in a loving and timely way—determine our ultimate experience of ourselves and others as adults. Attachment problems negatively affect our feeling of safety and our capacity to connect with the world around us. STAR’s attachment therapy can improve how you feel about yourself as well as your ability to form and sustain meaningful relationships.
Many of us did not have our needs met when we were small and vulnerable—through neglect or abuse—which many times creates anxiety, depression and a failure to thrive as adults. The good news is that the effective treatment at STAR intensive retreats—our proven attachment therapy—can help you change the effects of an “adult attachment disorder” with our nurturing processes and experiences within a safe and caring environment.
STAR intensive retreats offer a unique treatment for the effects of adult attachment disorder such as anxiety, depression, co-dependency, addictions, fear of intimacy, rigidity, and wanting to hurt or be hurt. Within the safety of the STAR retreat, you will have meaningful experiences of yourself as lovable and capable. In our nurturing environment you will have an opportunity to discover your own path, your own ways of healing. And, you will go home with the tools to continue your positive experiences and the skills to build healthy relationships and be more successful in every area of your life.
