Understanding Disorganized Attachment and Caregiving

This workshop is designed to help participants deepen their understanding of disorganized attachment and caregiving. The instructor will introduce how a particular type of high-risk attachment relationship is identified by researchers through observation of parent-child interaction, child doll play, a maternal interview and questionnaire. Disorganized attachment and caregiving will be contrasted with the various types of organized mother-child relationships. Video and interview material will be presented to demonstrate the use of attachment-based measures for clinical assessment and treatment planning. Participants will be encouraged to share their observations and clinical impressions of videos and transcripts.
