Clinical Application of the
Adult Attachment Interview
Joni Lavick, MFT

10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Attachment is learned behavior and passed on from parent to child. Insecure attachment strategies manifest in maladaptive interpersonal relationships and failed attempts by individuals to resolve or repair wounds resulting from past traumatic experiences. Insecure attachment creates affect-regulation problems characterized by mood disturbances, poor impulse control, substance abuse and dependence, and the lack of ability for self-regulation.
My approach is practical, based on my 25 years of experience and study. It is always my goal to teach useful interventions you can bring to your practice immediately. You won’t be disappointed!
We will use The Adult Attachment Interview (c) by Mary Main, Ph.D. to explore working relationally with individuals and couples. It provides real time methods to bring the healing power of therapy into the room.
