Postgraduate Certificate
in Attachment Theory

The International Attachment Network is proud to relaunch its Post Graduate Certificate in Attachment Theory. Originally launched in 1999, the Post Graduate Certificate in Attachment Theory is designed to empower students with a comprehensive understanding of the roots and clinical application of contemporary developments in attachment theory.


Lecturers are drawn from IAN’s impressive Honorary Membership; seminal thinkers, researchers, and clinicians in the attachment field, delivering the original foundations and contemporary developments of Bowlby’s thinking and the myriad of varying branches of application that have advanced in the clinical and research field.

To qualify for the award of the IAN Post-Graduate certificate participants must attend 18 of the 22 lectures. Due to the international nature of some of the speakers the lectures will be either live of pre-recorded which this will be indicated nearer the lecture date. Each weekly lecture will be one hour long, followed by a live 30 minute discussion group hosted by the speaker or by a member of the International Attachment Network.
