'Foundations of Attachment Observations with Infants' 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.

What will you learn?
You will be introduced to Gold Standard observational and narrative methods that are invaluable assets in any clinical tool kit, when supporting relational security is a shared goal.

Workshop Style:
This is full day interactive workshop. The art and science of attachment observation across the life-course is described and practiced in large and small groups. There is an opportunity for questions about the application to diverse contexts and populations.
