Attachment & Psychopathology: the development, prevention and treatment of psychological disorder: online training (Australian Time)

01 February 2022 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am AEDT

920$ (inc GST)

Delivered over eight 3-hour webinars this 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 as adaptive 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, developed by Dr. Patricia M. Crittenden. The DMM is relevant to individuals who are at risk, who have been exposed to danger, who display disturbed or maladaptive behaviour, or who are diagnosed as having a psychiatric disorder. A particular emphasis is cultural influences on attachment.

Who should attend?
The course is for professionals from a range of disciplines who work with adults, children and families where insecure attachment and / or unresolved trauma and loss may be a significant factor affecting family members’ safety, health, and well-being. This includes professionals working within mental health, social work, criminal justice, the voluntary / charitable sector, and related fields.

A solid understanding of attachment theory is beneficial before attending the course.

This course is also a prerequisite for people who intend to take courses in DMM assessments such as the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI).
