About The Program

The Changes III Workshop is offered as part of our continuing care
suite of programs. This experiential workshop uses Pia Mellody’s trail blazing work
on Love Addiction and attachment theory. The workshop incorporates group therapy,
education and process work. All facilitated by our renowned, formally trained clinicians.

In a safe and compassionate environment you will get the opportunity to explore the
impact of your early childhood attachments and/or relational trauma on the development
and sustainability of healthy adult relationships. You will uncover what has been holding
you back from true interdependence, healthy intimacy and attachments.
