Part A - Infancy and Childhood 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.

Suitable for

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.

Course benefits

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.

What you can expect
  • A full day interactive program
  • Art and science of attachment observation across the life-course is described and practiced in large and small groups
  • An opportunity for questions about the application to diverse contexts and populations
