Attachment Assessment: The Essentials for Clinicians - Part B – Adolescence and Adulthood is an in-person course that takes you through narrative, projective and questionnaire methods for assessing teen and adult attachment, with case examples. Validated methods for including attachment in clinical assessments are described and practiced, and interventions to support dyadic attachment security in families are detailed.
Familiarity with foundational attachment concepts is an advantage but not a pre-requisite.
A separate course, Part A - Infancy and Childhood, is also available and can be taken together with Part B 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.
