Attachment research and theory is a part of the field of developmental psychology that examines how the relationship between a child and an attachment figure shapes the development of the child.  The field of attachment focusing on adult experiences has two broad bases:

  1. One from studies of parent-child relations in which the parent’s adult attachment interview (AAI) findings have been shown to be the best predictor of the child’s attachment to that caregive
  2. The other base is the study of adult attachment from the point of view of adult-adult relationships.   

In this course we will apply the principles of IPNB to couples therapy through the lens of attachment in practical ways for the clinician.  An IPNB perspective prepares therapists to:

  1. Deepen and broaden their work
  2. Apply scientific knowledge in the clinical immersion of psychotherapy

When we combine attachment studies to the broader effort to understand the mind, what emerges is a rich, complex, and practical view of how relationships and the brain interact to “shape” who we are—to form the foundations of our mental experience, from how we regulate our emotions to the sense of our identity in life.
