Attachment Assessment: The Essentials for Clinicians - Part A - Infancy and Childhood is an in-person course that takes you through user-friendly approaches to understanding the Ainsworth systems for observing attachment, and brings them to life with observational footage of attachment interactions. Methods for observing attachment in clinical and home settings are described, and interventions to support attachment health are detailed.
Familiarity with foundational attachment concepts is an advantage but not a pre-requisite.
A separate course, Part B - Adolescence and Adulthood, is also available and can be taken together with Part A or independently.
Practitioners from a diverse spectrum of service contexts across the life-course, involved in supporting relational health between parents/carers and infants, children, and teens, and between adult family members.
Prof. Jenn McIntosh shares ideas for clinical application of the Gold Standards Frameworks including the Strange Situation, the Adult Attachment Interview and scales designed for clinicians to observe and monitor the progress of attachment relationships. These observational and narrative methods are invaluable assets in any clinical tool kit when supporting relational security is a shared goal.
