The establishment of an attachment research network in Latin America

José Causadias, doctoral student at the Institute of Child Development, and Alan Sroufe, professor emeritus at ICD, recently published a paper in Attachment and Human Development reporting the creation of an attachment network, Red Iberoamericana de Apego: RIA (Iberian-American Attachment Network), in Latin America and the proceedings of its meeting and conference in Panama in February 2010. RIA was established due to pressing need for expanded attachment research programs and attachment informed interventions in Latin America. The purpose of RIA is to promote human development and well being, informed by attachment theory, centering on research, and with implications for public policies, education, and intervention. Causadias and Sroufe also discuss the future goals and challenges of the new organization. Read the article online:
