Course Description

The classic Ainsworth SSP is applicable from 11 to 17 months whereas the PAA uses the same procedure to assess a child’s attachment to a specific attachment figure in the pre-school period (18months to 5 years). The course enables participants to administer and code the SSP using Patricia Crittenden’s Dynamic maturational Model of attachment. Suitable for health and social care professionals working with children and families in a wide variety of settings and those interested in research. The course includes e mail tutorial feedback on practice dvds + a reliability test leading to certification by Dr Crittenden.
