Two Leading Researchers to Air Latest Findings on Attachment Theory

April 8, 2010

Two leading researchers on human attachment theory, Drs. Allan N. Schore and Judith Schore, will discuss their most recent findings at a conference Tuesday, April 13 sponsored by the New York University Silver School of Social Work’s Division of Lifelong Learning and Professional Development.

The event, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., will be held at the NYU Kimmel Center for Student Life, 60 Washington Square South, New York, N.Y. 

Attachment theory asserts that people learn how to relate to others through the type of attachment formed during infancy with their parental figure. Depending on the parenting style, the attachment between parent and infant can range from secure to insecure. The type of attachment formed in infancy influences the personality of an individual, his or her understanding of the world, the formation of relationships, and eventually how he or she raises his or her own children.

Drawing from his most recent cutting-edge research on the subject, Allan Schore will discuss “The Paradigm Shift: From Conscious Cognition to Unconscious Affect.” He is a member of the clinical faculty of the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and a recipient of the American Psychological Association’s Division of Psychoanalysis Scientific Award in Recognition for Outstanding Contributions to Research, Theory and Practice of Neuroscience and Psychoanalysis.

 Judith Schore, associate dean of the Sanville Institute for Clinical Social Work and Psychotherapy and a Core Faculty member, will discuss her influential work, “Looking at Psychodynamic Theory Through a Neurobiological Lens: Reinterpreting Classic Theories and Cases in Terms of Affect Regulation.”

Allan Schore will also discuss “Working in the Right Brain: A Regulation Model of Clinical Expertise for Treatment of Attachment Trauma.”

Additionally, NYU Silver alumnae Donna Demetri-Friedman (MSW ’93, PhD ‘05) and Robin Donath (MSW ’02), will present relevant cases.

The conference, “Modern Attachment Theory: Implications of the Integration of Affect Regulation, Neuroscience, and Developmental Psychoanalysis for Clinicians,” is aimed principally at social workers; psychologists; mental health professionals from other disciplines; faculty, and MSW and PhD students.
