“Attachment isn't the problem. Danger is the problem, and attachment is the solution”. 

Dr Patricia Crittenden 

Study Group

Other Services:

  • Clinical supervision

  • 3-day introductory training (online/in-person):                                     

"Attachment-Based Case Formulation & Therapeutic Support".       

The training covers essential theoretical concepts of Attachment theory and practice and facilitates skills and understanding of:

  • what types of attachment behaviours individuals are able to use, 

  • how they are associated with certain ways of thinking and expressing oneself in interactions with others,

  •  how we can recognise attachment behaviour in ourselves and others,

  • and how we can best use this knowledge to engage with clients in the most effective and relationship-building way to facilitate positive change. 

The content is aimed at helping professionals (psychologists, social workers, allied health professionals, teachers) to form a deeper and more accurate understanding of their clients by considering the relational function of behaviour. Aspects of discourse analysis and an attachment-based interviewing framework add to the rich learning experience of this introductory training.​​

  • Online Modules – Learn at Your Own Pace.                               

Learn to use the attachment-based framework for your clinical practice in your own time and at a place convenient for you. This self-paced online training package offers 6 modules covering 12 hours of CPD.

Gemma Barter, Clinical & Counselling Psychologist

"Jessica's expertise, together with her clinical wisdom, and warm and engaging style, makes her course a rich learning experience. This training will be enormously helpful for anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of attachment theory. Jessica's training will greatly benefit those who seek to understand the function of certain behaviours, and who want to learn about case formulation and intervention using an attachment-based framework."

Dr Anne Robson, Psychologist

"Jess’s skilful and passionate approach to the training and the way in which she presents the Dynamic Maturational Model (DMM) is contagious. In fact, I haven’t been this excited about a psychological approach for years. I already practice from an attachment perspective but the functional orientation of the DMM and its utility has greatly enhanced my skills and competencies.  Already, working with the DMM I have witnessed accelerated results for my clients in terms of increased reflective functioning and positive change. For some clients the changes are profound and rapid which is amazing. I highly recommend this training to all therapists and mental health practitioners.  Regardless of your experience and stage of professional development, whether you know a lot, or a little, about attachment theory, embracing the DMM will change the way you work and help your clients achieve greater outcomes."

Laura Blackman, Teacher

"I wish I had this training earlier in my teaching career. It gave me deeper understanding about reasons behind behaviours that I have seen in the classroom."
