About this event:
Please note events are live stream only, they are not recorded.
While the focus of ‘classical’ attachment theory has been on attachment styles (behaviours) derived from infancy/early childhood, the Dynamic Maturational Model (DMM), by seeking to understand the function of those behaviours and the needs they are endeavouring to meet, is a developmental model that extends throughout the lifespan.
The workshop will, by means of a slide presentation, offer an overview of the DMM and its contribution to clinical practice. The implications of the DMM in relation to serious mental health diagnoses and personality disorders will be explored and there will be opportunity for participants to reflect on, discuss and consider how a DMM-informed approach might be integrated into and assist participants’ own clinical practice.
