Of all human fears abandonment is the most primal,” says Susan Anderson, a psychotherapist who has worked with the victims of abandonment trauma and its aftermath of self sabotaging patterns for more than 30 years. “Left unresolved, this deep personal wound can linger beneath the surface where it undermines self-esteem and interferes in our relationships from within.

This experiential training seminar explores the impact of abandonment trauma on children and adults. We examine how the abandonment grief process differs from other forms of bereavement and loss, and how unresolved abandonment trauma can interfere in adult functioning, most notably, in the ability to form primary relationships. We explore key features of post traumatic stress disorder of abandonment and how they differ from those of borderline personality disorder. We practice using Akeru, a program of recovery techniques for ameliorating core emotions stemming from abandonment wounds past and present which tend to accumulate as life progresses through its stages, and for overcoming abandonment’s post traumatic patterns of self sabotage. We use the methods of didactic presentation, experiential training, and intensive group sharing process.

Learning Objectives

  1. To provide an overview of abandonment trauma and recovery techniques.
  2. To explore abandonment syndrome, primal abandonment fear, the psycho biology of emotional conditioning, separation trauma, the distinction between the symptoms of PTSD of Abandonment and Borderline Personality Disorder, the impact of abandonment on adult functioning (i.e. the ability to form primary relationships, achieve long range goals, resist immediate gratification, struggle with patterns of self-sabotage, or evince self-esteem, etc).
  3. To create an experiential laboratory in which techniques specific to abandonment trauma recovery can be practiced in a safe space. 
  4. As a facilitator I work toward increasing group intimacy so that significant personal sharing of responses to the abandonment issue can occur.

New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education credits. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEUs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.”
