Attachment & Psychopathology 3-day Course
Tuesday 21st – Thursday 23rd May 2019 at DCU, St Patrick’s Campus, Drumcondra, Dublin
World-renowned Dr. Patricia McKinsey Crittenden presents her training programme in Attachment & Psychopathology in Dublin
Led by Dr. Patricia McKinsey Crittenden, academic and practitioner in the fields of child abuse, attachment theory, and family therapy.
This course examines development from infancy to adulthood and the process of adaptation and developmental pathways that carry risk for psychopathology. It focuses on development, prevention, and treatment of psychological disorder.
The evidence-based approach uses the Dynamic-Maturational Model (DMM) of Attachment and Adaptation which is highly relevant to individuals who are at risk, under child protection supervision, have been exposed to danger, display disturbed or maladaptive behaviours, or are diagnosed as having a psychiatric disorder. A particular emphasis is cultural influences on attachment.
The course is aimed at professionals who work with troubled individuals or families requiring support including; psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, solicitors, teachers, nurses, and family support workers.

Crittenden has served on the Faculties of Psychology at the Universities of Virginia and Miami and held visiting positions at the Universities of Helsinki, Bologna, the Clark Institute of Psychiatry (Canada), San Diego State University (USA) and Edith Cowan University Australia. She has published more than 100 scientific papers and several books. She is well known for developing the Dynamic-Maturational Model (DMM) of attachment and adaptation and is one of the founders of the International Association for the Study of Attachment (IASA).
