Dr. Martha Straus presented on Love and Attachment in Psychotherapy and Supervision at this year’s Field Supervisors Day, which was held on February 9. In addition to teaching at Antioch, Dr. Straus maintains a private practice in Brattleboro, Vermont, and consults internationally to schools, hospitals, community mental health centers, and social service agencies on child, adolescent, and family development, attachment, trauma, and therapy. She is the author of numerous articles and five books including, most recently, Treating trauma in adolescents: Development, attachment, and the therapeutic relationship.
Field Supervisors Day, offered to practicum field site supervisors and Clinical Psychology faculty and students, also included a mid-year traineeship review. The Massachusetts Psychological Association (MPA), a co-sponsor with Antioch University New England, is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. MPA maintains responsibility for this program and its content. Participants were able to receive three hours of CE credit for the completion of this workshop.
