The Strange Situation is among the most influential measures of infant mental health, and is the recommended assessment of attachment in young children by The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). The infant Strange Situation is classified using the coding system developed by Mary Ainsworth, Mary Main and Judith Solomon (Ainsworth & Wittig 1969, Main & Solomon, 1986; 1990).

This 10-day seminar, led by Dr. Judith Solomon provides a rare opportunity to learn the classification system from one of its contributing authors.

Judith Solomon is internationally recognised for her pioneering research and theory-building on attachment and caregiving, including her discovery, with Mary Main, of the infant disorganized/disoriented attachment category. She conducted the first longitudinal study of infants in separated and divorced families, and developed key representational measures of caregiving and child attachment, including the Caregiving Interview and the Attachment Doll Play Projective Assessment. With Carol George, she edited Attachment Disorganization (1999) and Disorganized Attachment and Caregiving (2011). She was recently Fulbright Visiting Professor at the University of Vienna.

The first half of this training will focus on the organised Ainsworth ("A", "B", and "C") categories; the remainder on disorganisation of attachment. The training requires substantial time and effort, including practicing coding after class over the course of the 10 day workshop. At the conclusion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of training and are eligible to undertake reliability testing online with Dr. Solomon. Details of the reliability procedure and costs will be presented during the workshop. Places are limited, so early booking is advised.

Full 10 Day Seminar, 3rd – 14th July 2017 : £1,180
Disorganization Training Only, 10th – 14th July 2017 : £590
