Attachment and psychopathology

Go Back


This three-day course focuses on the development, prevention and treatment of psychological disorder.

 It weaves together theory, human development, assessment, case examples and treatment applications to reframe maladaptive behaviour in terms of strategies for self-protection. The course focuses on development from infancy to adulthood, emphasising the process of adaptation and developmental pathways that carry risk for psychopathology.

The model used is the Dynamic-Maturational Model (DMM) of attachment and adaptation.The DMM is relevant to individuals who are at risk, have been exposed to danger, display disturbed or maladaptive behaviour, or are diagnosed as having a psychiatric disorder. A particular emphasis is cultural influences on attachment.
