Attachment and the Arts conference

The BAAT series of ‘Attachment and the Arts’ conferences aims to explore art therapy through the lens of attachment theory and related research. The10th ‘Attachment and the Arts’ conference will focus on research developments in understanding the ‘bio’ element in the psycho-bio-social framework applied to Attachment Theories. We are extremely sad to announce the death in May of our keynote speaker, Dr Rodney Adeniyi-Jones and our thoughts are with this family. We will update the programme as so
