Attachment Based Interventions in Community Settings
Mon. 19 June 2017, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm AEST
Attachment theory makes sense. But does it work in real world applications and how can we tell?
Advance your understanding of attachment-based community interventions by attending a one day conference featuring Dr Lisa Berlin, Associate Professor at the University of Maryland.
Dr Lisa Berlin is an international expert on the application of attachment theory, research, and attachment-based interventions to support at-risk families with infants and young children. She will report on both descriptive and intervention studies in the United States, including her work with the Headstart program and the Healthy Families Home Visiting program.
Participants attending the conference will increase their understanding of:
Current research on risk factors for early problematic parenting
The need for an increased focus on attachment in typical, community-based programs for at-risk infants and toddlers
The benefits and challenges of implementing attachment-based interventions in the community
The conference will also include an interactive panel discussion about the particular challenges of implementing and evaluating attachment-based interventions, particularly Circle of Security approaches, in the Australian context. As well as Lisa Berlin, the panel will be comprised of leading Clinicians, Policy Makers, Educators and Researchers with an interest in attachment-based interventions. Audience participation will be welcome.
