The Early Career Committee is pleased to host an

Early Career Mini-Meeting:


The Role of Attachment Trauma in the

Development of Adult Psychopathology

Ellen Nasper, Ph.D.*

Saturday, February 20, 2021

12:00 pm -1:30 pm


Research confirms the clinical observation that early attachment trauma (neglect, sexual and/or physical abuse) is very prevalent in the histories of people with severe psychiatric diagnoses.  Research in Attachment Theory has provided useful heuristics for recognizing manifestations of attachment disturbances that manifest in adult symptoms, including symptoms reflective of emotional dysregulation (depression, suicidality, substance abuse, self-harm) and dissociation of experiences (amnesia, derealization, depersonalization).   In this presentation we will draw the links between the ways early attachment experiences are organized into expectations about relationships, and how these manifest within the psychotherapy process.  Abundant case illustrations will be offered.
