DMM and the ABC+D are the two leading models describing attachment science and theory. In what ways are they the same? While we may look at some of the clinically significant differences, our main focus will be on similarities. Join us as we explore these questions in an informal, conversational, and collegial format.
The DMM, or more formally the Dynamic Maturational Model of Attachment and Adaptation was initially developed by Dr. Patricia Crittenden. The other model is loosely labeled the ABC+D, or Berkeley model. One of it’s primary developers was Dr. Mary Main. Both Crittenden and Main studied under attachment pioneers John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth. CSI will provide participants a short bibliography of articles that describe the differences between the two models and how they developed from different assumptions. Participants are encouraged to help us build out the bibliography.
Benedict Grey is the Programme Convenor and Senior Lecturer for the Attachment Studies program, Department of Psychology, University of Roehampton, London. Mr. Grey has considerable experience and knowledge about DMM theory and clinical application. email@example.com
