Content: this course teaches discourse analysis and classification for the AAI, for non-risk and (mild) out-patient clinical applications of the AAI, using the DMM method.

There are (a) weekly coding work between the sessions and (b) a requirement to submit 3 AAIs carried out by the course participant; this work must be completed to receive a Certificate for Administering the AAI.


  1. Bachelor’s Degree or its academic equivalent; Master’s and doctoral degrees are recommended.
  2. Attachment, Neurodevelopment & Psychopathology before completing the AAI course (i.e., AN&P may be taken concurrently).

Language: English for the course, but practice and the reliability test can be partly in selected other languages if needed.

Benefits to clinicians of taking the AAI course:

  • Provide crucial history about danger & its impact on personal adaptation, particularly as it affects psychological treatment
  • Change the way you hear language, especially in treatment
  • Change the way you use language, especially in treatment
  • Establish a shared knowledge base with your client/patient
  • Create compassion where there was blame or doubt
  • Create a way of working together in treatment
  • Jumpstart the treatment or restart a stalled treatment
  • Set the speaker’s mind in motion
  • Enable the therapist to find the person’s ZPD
  • Enable the therapist to avoid blind alleys
  • Permit reliable coders to classify the strategies used by individuals;
  • Note: coding reliability and earning a coding certificate usually require more effort than this 18-day course.
