Transition to Adulthood Attachment Interview (TAAI) for 16-25-year-olds
The Transition to Adulthood Attachment Interview is a procedure for assessing older adolescents’ and young adults’ strategies for identifying, preventing, and protecting the self from perceived dangers, particularly dangers tied to intimate relationships. The assessment uses a modified version of the Adult Attachment Interview (George, Kaplan, & Main, 1986, 1996).
This course offered by Dr. Crittenden is based on the Dynamic-maturational model (DMM) that expands Bowlby-Ainsworth theory (Crittenden, 1995, 2000, 2002) and the DMM extension of the Main and Goldwyn coding method (Crittenden, 1999; Crittenden, 1998-present).
- Dates: 5 days: London: Oct 8-12, 2019.
- Time: The course begins at 2pm on the first day and ends at 1pm on the last day. Otherwise, full days of work consisting of coding in the morning, feedback sessions (12pm-1pm), and class work in the afternoon (2pm-6pm).
- Location: London
- Instructors: Patricia Crittenden, PhD and Andrea Landini, MD
- Facilitators: Clark Baim, PhD, and Rebecca Carr-Hopkins, MSW
The TAAI uses the discourse analysis for the (AAI), for normative and (mild) outpatient clinical applications, with a different interview (the TAAI) and modified classificatory guidelines suited to the transition to adulthood.
There is coding work following the course and a requirement to submit 2 transcribed TAAIs carried out by the course participant (1 normative and 1 mild clinical). This work must be completed to receive a certificate for administering the TAAI (for example, for court evaluations).
A didactic Advanced Clinical Course will be offered later for more serious clinical and forensic applications. A reliability test will follow that course.
Prerequisite: Course participants must have taken Adult Attachment Interview course, but reliability is not required.
Language: English, but the TAAI assignment may be completed in other languages
