Attachment Across the Lifespan and Across Generations: Implications for clinical work with a focus on loss and trauma

Miriam Steele, Ph.D. and Howard Steele, Ph.D.
presented by CAPCT and TICP in collaboration with The Besner Parent-Infant Care Project

4 Friday Afternoons in Fall 2023

September 22, 29, October 13, 20, 2023

12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EST

Seminars will be held online via videoconference



Over four Fridays with Professors Miriam Steele & Howard Steele, attendees will hear and see a contemporary and historical account of attachment theory, arguably the most powerful available evidence-based account of children’s social and emotional development, with lifespan and intergenerational implications. The Steeles benefitted from having ongoing direct contact over 3-4 years with John Bowlby in London (UK) where Miriam and Howard studied and worked (at University College London) 1986-2004. Miriam trained as a psychoanalyst @ the Anna Freud Center, and is a member of the New York Psychoanalytic Society. Howard is currently a candidate in psychoanalytic training at the William Alanson White Institute in New York City. Since 2004, the Steeles have been based in New York City at The New School for Social Research, where they have helped develop a multi-family intervention (GABI or Group Attachment-Based Intervention) aiming to prevent child maltreatment and promote secure parent-toddler attachments. The Steeles’ work is heavily influenced by sensitivity to the adverse consequences of exposure to trauma and loss and other forms of Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACEs, with attention to sources of resilience and recovery, including ‘reflective-functioning’. The four-session workshop will provide a thorough introduction to the clinical applications of attachment theory and research, including how to identify unresolved loss or unresolved trauma in speech and behavior. Finally, there will be one lecture entirely devoted to our research including the Mirror Interview, highlighting links among body image, body satisfaction, and alienation from one’s body, and attachment.
