Abstract

Attachment theory and research can contribute to the self psychological/intersubjective approach to clinical work with adolescents. Focusing on affective interactions, several adolescent cases demonstrate how knowledge of the AAI (Adult Attachment Interview) can help practitioners recognize disturbed and disturbing affective interactions that serve as the conduit for intergenerational transmission of emotional dysfunction.

Keywords:

Attachment, adolescence, self psychology, intersubjectivity, AAI, affective interaction, intergenerational transmission.
