Psychologists, licensed mental health professionals, and graduate students in mental health fields are invited to attend. Attendance required for all sessions; those who have attended an Attachment Patterns webinar are not required to attend the first day. At the end of the seminar, trainees are prepared to use and interpret the AAP in clinical and research settings. Trainees who wish to code their own AAPs complete reliability certification. Trainees who do not complete reliability use a master judge for scoring (judges available in English, German, Italian, and French). Seminar goals: Increase knowledge of attachment and the meaning of attachment patterns, AAP administration using in-person and the new web-based virtual stimuli, understand how the AAP coding scheme elucidates attachment constructs, and discuss clinical and research applications. Registration includes a coding consultation group for six months following training and one year of reliability work. English language proficiency recommended.
