    RIAIMH's Spring 2018 Community Conversation Series continues to focus on our themes of Attachment and Relationship-Focused Practice, now in more complex circumstances. 

    The first Session of our Spring 2018 Series takes place on March 5, 2018.

    We are very excited to welcome back Jean Twomey, MSW, PhD, whose presentation is titled: Disruptions in Early Attachment: Developmental and Relational Contexts. 

    Jean's presentation continues where her November 2017 presentation to our group left off. It provides an examination of the impact of early disruptions in the lives of infants and young children. We will consider the effect of disruptions in attachment that involve more complex circumstances that lead to involvement in the child welfare system and examine the impact and challenges child welfare involvement has on the child, the parent(s), and the systems working with the families.

    The Strange Situation and Face-to-Face paradigm are two research instruments that will be explained and presented with accompanying videos to illustrate attachment classifications and the concept of mutual regulation. Knowledge of these research instruments can contribute an increased understanding of dyadic interactions and the parent-child relationship.

    We look forward to seeing you there!
