Welcome to the Psychology of Attachment!                                      
Here is the course outline, reading list, and details of other upcoming courses on Attachment.    
Slides, relevant documents, and resource references will be uploaded here each week.

In preparation for weeks 2-6 I shall ask 3 students each week to make an up to 5 minute presentation on an Attachment figure in their lives – see below. There will be a lecture format where I will present the topics, which you will have the opportunity to respond to.
At the end of each class there will be a 30 minute group discussion on attachment using students own personal experiences of attachment and the impact that might have had on their life choices and behaviour.
See you Friday 22nd September at 6pm. 

 

Week 1 22nd September

Attachment Figures Exercise
Choose any attachment figure that you wish. Only as a guide think about who is/was the person? What did they do? Where were they from? Do you have any stories, tales, anecdotes of the person? What was their own history?  What did you like or dislike about them? What impact did they have on you? Has your view of them changed?
