The Attachment Style Interview (4 day course)

asi rcpThe Attachment Style Interview is an assessment tool that assesses characteristics of adults in terms of their quality of close relationships, their ability to access and utilise social support and security of their attachment style. The ASI interview has been used extensively in both practice and research settings to examine psycho-social risks for psychological disorder, including major depression, anxiety and postnatal depression. It is currently used to assess parents and carers in child and family services, individuals seeking psychological services as well as for offenders in forensic settings. ASI was developed by Professor Antonia Bifulco and her team at the Lifespan Research Group.

Our next available 4-day ASI training course for psychiatrist and psychologists working in research and clinical practice (ASI-RCP) will take place at Middlesex University Hendon campus, North London.

Dates: 13-15 September (days 1-3) and 25 October (day 4)
