Translating Attachment Theory and Research into Practice: From Infancy to Adulthood 

The fundamental importance of attachment security in promoting mental health and wellbeing across the lifespan is clear. In this presentation I highlight some of the ways in which attachment security promotes resilience in infancy, adolescence and adulthood. The translation of attachment concepts into evidence-based interventions at each developmental stage is discussed, noting underlying therapeutic mechanisms and key factors that contribute to change. All programs work toward reshaping the internal working models of our clients but the methods and pathways we follow to do this differ across clients and age groups. Understanding the diversity of ways that we can increase attachment security with our clients provides us with powerful therapeutic goals.
