Common Ground, Common Threads Foster Recovery: attachment, parent-infant research and neuroscience in conversation

Dr Loyola McLean

Human beings develop in connected relationships that promote both personal and social regulation and we experience this connectivity in the safety, comfort, interest and delight of being ourselves together, and sharing activities, a process with rhythm and flow that involves so many choice points. Trauma breaks down our personal and relational integrity and connectedness, bringing constriction or dissociation and then repair, restoration, reintegration and renewal are required. Attachment theory which now embraces notions of the disorganising effects of loss, trauma and neglect, parent-infant research which informs our notions of “good enough” connection and new bodies of knowledge from neuroscience, such as the Polyvagal theory and the Fear Cascade are all lenses that inform our practice of applied interpersonal neurobiology and the possibilities for intervention for recovery.

Dr Loyola McLean

Dr McLean is a Consultation-Liaison Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist in public and private practice with interests in attachment psychosomatics, the psychophysiology of stress system disorders and the therapeutic consequences. She is currently working as a Psychotherapy Educator with the Sydney West and Greater Southern Psychiatry Training Network. Her recent PhD studied the mediating haemostatic and inflammatory links between depression and coronary heart disease. That research project nourished her interest in attachment theory as a theory of 'body mind and stress systems' and her research will continue in this area. Her aims are to explore the underlying psychophysiology and the paths to repair and to make attachment theory more user-friendly for clinicians and patients in order to foster more collaborative ways of understanding presentations and treatment goals and to promote integrated therapies.
