Fulshear’s Adult Attachment Model strengthens relationships and develops confidence.
Attachment is at the heart of many of the disorders and issues that have brought clients and their families to Fulshear. Addiction, personality disorder, self-harm, even depression and anxiety have roots in attachment. Many of our clients have been diagnosed with multiple disorders, including personality disorders. These disorders are often treated for the symptoms, but fail to address the underlying issues. We work through the negative beliefs clients have about themselves and teach essential skills to manage your life, even in the midst of big life changes. From the moment you get here, we work to understand your wants and needs so that we can equip you with the best tools for a fulfilling life. Fulshear’s mission is to help launch healthy, strong and influential women.
If you or someone you love might be suffering from an attachment disorder, please call. We are always available for information and assistance. Please call 855-842-5593. We can help.
What are the signs of attachment disorder?
Specific symptoms of the issue will vary from person-to-person and will depend on their attachment style. In any case, the disorder is marked by significant problems in interpersonal relationships.
An anxious-attached person might call or text multiple times, self-harm, threaten to leave or be sexually seductive. An avoidant-attached person might use alcohol or drugs, isolate themselves, self-harm, or lack empathy.
It is common for people with attachment disorder to appear to have it all together, then have a major emotional meltdown.
What is the Fulshear Adult Attachment Model™?
The Fulshear Adult Attachment Model™ is a one-of-a-kind, two-part treatment process that helps parents and young women identify unhealthy attachment-related behaviors and change those behaviors. The process outlines what triggers attachment reactions (example: excessive calling/texting, lack of empathy) in young women, demonstrates how certain reactions might neutralize a threat but not lead to security, and teaches families how to modify their reactions and interactions to develop healthy attachments.
How can I help my child if she has attachment issues?
Psychotherapy might be needed to help identify your daughter’s attachment style, response to interpersonal difficulties, and change very negative perceptions she might have about herself (“broken,” “unlovable,” “replaceable,” etc.). Therapy can also teach her how to build lasting, supportive relationships.
Regarding actions, you can take at home, help your daughter establish her identify with strengths and talents. Love her unconditionally and verbally state the opposite of some of the negative beliefs she holds. Confirm that she is certainly “good enough,” worthy of love and belonging, and irreplaceable.
Equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) uses the powerful relationship between humans and horses to teach life skills. In addition to learning to care for another living thing, equine therapy helps students learn how to care for thamselves and interact with other people more effectively.
Fulshear is especially equipped to help young adult women develop coping skills to navigate complex changes in their lives, such as going off to college or dealing with the death of a loved one. We help girls focus on the psychological adjustment to the change instead of the change itself.
Where She’ll Live
When residents arrive, they live on The Ranch, 34 gorgeous acres. The peaceful environment is an ideal location for intensive healing. After building health and stability, residents move to the apartments in Stafford, Texas and live with two or three roommates but no support staff.
“Our family is forever changed from our experience at Fulshear. Our journey began on a hot, sunny day… when we dropped Jenny off at the ranch. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done; however, what I didn’t realize at the time was that it would be the best thing for Jenny and our family.”
