As 2015 comes to an end, we can reflect on the success of the 7th International Attachment Conference, sponsored by SEAS and The Center for Attachment Research that took place over 6-8 August 2015, with over 500 people attending from 24 countries.
Also, in 2015, SEAS sponsored the Attachment Pre-Conference, that took place on the day before the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) began in March, 2015, in Philadelphia. The pre-conference celebrated 30 year years since the Adult Attachment Interview was introduced, transforming the attachment research field. And at the main SRCD meetings, hundreds crowded into a room to participate in a Conversation Hour on this historic milestone in the science of attachment studies.
The work of the Center for Attachment Research, in conjunction with the Center for Babies, Toddlers and Families at the Albert Einstein Medical College has been featured (Dec 2011) in a film on 'Attachment Theory'. This film highlights the evolutionary-based need in our human species and other species' for contact and comfort from trusted others -- across the lifespan. Links among behavior, biology and health, both mental and physical, are highlighted.
