Course Description

Taught by Rebecca Carr-Hopkins MSc Attachment Studies

The Adult Attachment Interview is a procedure for assessing adults' strategies for identifying, preventing, and protecting the self from perceived dangers, particularly dangers tied to intimate relationships. The DMM-AAI course is based on an expansion of the Main and Goldwyn procedure and is both a useful research tool and a potential guide for a wide range of professionals. Therapists, in particular, learn not only new ways to conceptualise troubled development, but also ways to identify, in adults, distortions of the mental processing of information, particularly information relevant to disorders of feelings, thought, and behavior. The techniques for interpreting speech can be useful even if the professional does not formally use the interview itself in practice. For those interested in research applications, this 18-day training is usually sufficient to establish reliability on the major classifications and sub-classifications. Part 4 of the course, applicable to forensic uses of the AAI, can be taken separately with Dr Crittenden. See: Assessing Adult Attachment: A Dynamic-Maturational Approach to Discourse Analysis. Crittenden, P. M. & Landini, A. (2011). New York: Norton. Required reading for the course.
