At The Root with Greg Kiper

Defense Mechanisms, Attachment Types and Triggers – Oh My!

Greg continues to share the journey of Charlotte and Steve, after meeting with them together and then each individually, Greg talks about what those sessions have uncovered about each of them. He shows how attachment type can be directly connected to relational trauma which left unchecked, pops up in relationships in the form of triggers. Greg explains that exploiting those triggers points is rarely a conscious act; rather it’s a subconscious act likely also stemming from relational trauma. The first step to repairing the relationship, is awareness.
