Working Therapeutically with couples and families using 

an Attachment Narrative perspective:

Approaches to healing and repair in intimate and family relationships

The Department of Family Studies is organising a seminar on Working Therapeutically with couples and families using an Attachment Narrative perspective by Professor Arlene Vetere. It is going to be held on Campus, University of Malta on 09 January 2016 from 0900hrs to 1700hrs and on 10 January 2016 from 0900hrs to1300hrs at IT Services Building, room VC102.

The seminar will outline an integration of attachment theory and narrative theory with systemic theory and practice that facilitates a richer formulation of relational trauma, experienced both within and between generations in the family.

Arlene Vetere is Professor of Family Therapy and Systemic Practice at Vid Specialised University, Oslo, Norway; Affiliate Professor, Department of Family Studies, Malta University; and recently retired Professor of Clinical Psychology, Surrey University, UK. She is a clinical psychologist and systemic psychotherapist specialising in working with couples and families, and with violence and substance use in families. In the past she has worked in clinical settings designated for older people and their families, with child and adolescent problems, with the child protection system and family courts, with acute psychiatric and rehabilitation settings, with intellectual and physical disability, and with community, in-patient and out-patient settings. The workshop draws on her book: Dallos R and Vetere A (2009) Systemic Therapy and Attachment Narratives: Applications in a range of clinical settings. London: Routledge.
