On September 8, 2020, Dr. Benedict Grey will discuss the three main attachment patterns of parents and caregivers (Sensitive, Controlling, and Unresponsive) and what they specifically look like in the context of the Meaning of the Child attachment interview. He will build on his prior DMM Coffee House session introducing the MotC, and discuss the MotC coding system for analyzing parental discourse and compare them with brief excerpts of CARE index videos.
The MotC is a DMM-based attachment assessment which assess attachment patterns of parents and caregivers. The MotC also assess how the parent psychologically thinks about their child and identifies other parent-child issues as it examines discourse patterns of parents discussing their children.
As usual, Ben will provide a brief lecture with PowerPoint slides, and then open the floor for questions and discussion.
Prior attendance at Ben’s first session, DMM Coffee House #14: Introduction to the Meaning of the Child interview, is not required. If anyone wishes to see it prior to session #22, please let us know and we will find a time to schedule a replay of session #14. More information about the MotC interview is available here.
