Spring conference - couple attachments: relationships that change us
Attachment theory has long held a place in Tavistock Relationships, 70 year history of thinking psychoanalytically about the couple relationship. The 2018 spring conference will be chaired by Dr. Christopher Clulow, former director of Tavistock Relationships, who has a particular interest in how creative couple relationships can transform early attachment deficiencies.
- Dr Amanda Jones will talk about the importance of early mother and infant bonding and will illustrate her points with some beautiful film footage.
- Andrew Balfour will focus on the other end of the age spectrum, examining the effect of strengthening couple attachment relationships in illness and old age.
- Jeremy Holmes will speak about the integration of developments in neuroscience with attachment informed psychotherapeutic practice.
- Mary Target will highlight the importance of the analyst/patient relationship, using both attachment and psychoanalytic theory to inform her thinking and work.
