Spiritual Roots of Attachment, Connection, and the Power of Relationships in Recovery

Dan Gray's 2021 UCAP Conference Talk

This presentation addresses the current research and philosophical perspectives regarding attachment and healthy relationships. We review commonly used attachment-based therapeutic interventions in the treatment of couples and families. Since many who are in recovery come from a wide range of faith-based backgrounds and beliefs, we will examine the spiritual roots of a variety of religious and philosophical and spiritual perspectives. Because many in recovery are also involved in 12-step programs we will also discuss the implications of a relationship with a “higher power” in the recovery process.
