About IAN international

International collaboration is at the heart of what we do. We continue to expand our international network of IAN chapters, and now have an active presence in twenty-seven countries across five continents. Under the banner of IAN our international colleagues research and publish on attachment theory, train psychological clinicians and allied professions in its latest developments, inform the public on the benefits and application of attachment theory, and develop and implement new attachment theory treatment initiatives including psychotherapy, interventions in mental health,  mental health promotion, education, and interventions with communities, families and parents.  IAN’s international initiatives take the form of courses, conferences, study groups and research projects, and include collaboration with independent clinical, academic and professional institutions, at both a national and transnational level.
