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.
