Playing With Attachment Theory and Research: Relevance to Clinical Formulation and Process...Pros, Cons, Nons?

Presenter: Susan C. Warshaw, EdD, ABPP 
President Elect, Division of Psychoanalysis

Attachment research is providing invaluable data about the relational processes which impact human development. Secure, insecure and disorganized attachment relationships are understood to play key roles in the healthy or compromised development of affect regulation, mentalization, the self, and interpersonal relationships.

Through the presentation of a clinical vignette, Dr.Warshaw will consider the relevance of attachment theory to her understanding of clinical case material. She will raise key questions regarding the integration of contemporary developmental and attachment research findings into our therapeutic work with adult patients.

Together, we will consider to what extent these new research findings impact clinical process.  We expect this will stimulate a lively discussion.

Susan C. Warshaw, EdD, ABPP, is Clinical Associate Professor and Supervisor of Psychoanalysis at the NYU Postdoctoral Program, founding co-chair with Emmanuel Ghent of the Relational Track and  a teaching  and supervisory faculty member within the Relational Orientation. She is also a founding teaching and supervisory faculty member of The William Alanson White Institute Child and Adolescent Training Program and an Honorary Member of the William Alanson White Psychoanalytic Society. She is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Infant, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy and Co-Edited, with Neil Skolnick, Relational Perspectives in Psychoanalysis (1992),Analytic Press). Trained by Mary Main in the Administration and Coding of the Adult Attachment Interview, Dr. Warshaw has, for fifteen years, presented at numerous conferences and authored articles and book chapters exploring the Rapprochement between Attachment Theory and Psychoanalysis. Her particular interest has been in comparing and contrasting Attachment and Interpersonal Perspectives in understanding clinical topics.
