Attachment and Memory Systems

About this event

This Seminar is also Week 18 of our PG Certificate in Attachment Theory. Registered PG Cert students will be given a code to access free tickets on the Eventbrite page on the day of the seminar.

In this seminar, Dr Haline Schendan weaves understanding of attachment theory and research with scientific understanding of brain systems for memory to understand the role of attachment representations in behaviour. Attachment theory proposes that children develop relationship representations of the caregiver-child relationship referred to as ‘internal working models’ (IWM) that influence relationships throughout life. As learned representations, IWMs depend upon memory systems in the brain and associated mental simulation abilities. Memory systems contribute to the development, maintenance and change of IWMs. The roles of conscious and nonconscious memory systems in behaviour have important implications for how IWMs influence predictions about the world, understanding of self and others, and relationship dynamics. Memory also underlies how IWMs can change in attachment security (e.g., from more insecure to more secure) with therapeutic interventions.
