Clinical implications of attachment theory and research: A focus on the Adult Attachment Interview

Miriam Steele bridges the world of psychoanalytic thinking and clinical practice with contemporary research in child development. She trained as a child analyst at the Anna Freud Centre London and received her Ph.D. from University College London. Her research began with the study of “Intergenerational Patterns of Attachment” which embodied one of the first prospective longitudinal studies incorporating the Adult Attachment Interview and Strange Situation protocols. This work was important in initiating the concept of reflective functioning and providing empirical data to demonstrate the importance of parental states of mind in the social and emotional development of the their children with a longitudinal focus on their development into adulthood. Currently, Dr. Steele is a co-investigator on a federally funded grant “Birth to Three: A Pragmatic Clinical Trial for Child Maltreatment Prevention. Her other projects include studies exploring attachment and body representations in mother-child dyads, and studies of children in foster care and adoption.

This talk will outline the main theoretical constructs and contributions from recent developments in attachment theory and research. A special focus will be on the Adult Attachment Interview and discovering its utility to inform clinical practice. This workshop is designed for clinical psychologists, social workers, psychotherapists, students and researchers interested in the clinical implications of attachment theory and research for child and adult psychotherapy. In particular, attention will be paid to the concept of reflective functioning and mentalization based treatments especially with regard to working with traumatized patients.
