Attachment Theory Practice Group

presented by Annabel Wyndham

A working knowledge of attachment, like brain structure and function, is central to the understanding of Social Workers working with children, adolescents and adults. Its operation is not always obvious and prominent, but it gives us insights into personal functioning and relationships when we use it as a viewing prism, particularly when people are in trouble or stressed.

Annabel Wyndham is currently a private practitioner working with children, adolescents and adults. In the 1990’s she and others ran a two day Attachment Symposium to bring awareness of attachment theory and practice to the ACT. Arising out of this endeavour the Canberra and Region Attachment Network (CRAN) was established, which ran training sessions for a number of years. There is now the ACT branch of the Australian Association of Infant Mental Health Institute which carries on this work.

Annabel does not claim to be an attachment expert, but she values it highly as a dynamic and useful perspective. The workshop will be participative, aiming to share and broaden what participants know about attachment.
