In this lecture Dr Mario Marrone will explore, formulate and define the application of attachment theory to psychotherapy. He will touch on one of Bowlby’s key articles (1988), in which he described the five principles, which a psychotherapist needs to achieve in his/her/their professional work, and he will examine the central task of exploring the patient’s internal working models, which are developed in the course of early attachment experiences. Dr Marrone will then present his own more complex model of psychotherapy, which is built on Bowlby’s five principles; explaining the model’s concept of ‘representational constellations’ (Marrone,1984), which is rooted in his understanding of attachment theory as a psychoanalytic paradigm. He will illustrate points throughout by sensitively drawing on clinical examples, which respect the patients’ confidentiality.
