    All of us get triggered.  And sometimes it seems as if the people closest to us are the ones that trigger us the most.  Why is that?  Unless we can figure out how those triggers were originally installed, we could be sabotaging our adult relationships by becoming dysregulated.  Attachment Theory lends some general insights into our “way of being in the world” and the things that make us feel unsafe.  Do we believe that the world is a safe and abundant place?  Or are we suspicious that people will take advantage of us and we must be defensive? Based on his best-selling book “How to Survive Your Childhood Now That You’re an Adult: A Path to Authenticity and Awakening,” Psychotherapist Ira Israel will discuss how we can recognize and overcome the long-ingrained fears that are hindering us from getting the authentic love that we crave today.
