“States of Mind with Respect to Attachment” and Change in a Psychotherapeutic Relationship: A Study of the Coherence of Transcript in a Short-Term Psychotherapy with an Adolescent

Sergio Muscetta, M.D., Nino Dazzi, M.D., Alessandra De Coro, M.D., Francesca Ortu, M.D. and Anna Maria Speranza, M.D.

THIS WORK INTENDS TO SHOW SOME CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS of recent developments in attachment theory and their application to the evaluation of the therapeutic relationship.

First, we will briefly review the main concepts and recent developments in attachment theory. We will then discuss some methodological issues: our underlying hypothesis is that a study of internal representational models of attachment relationships can provide valuable conceptual tools for psychotherapy research because the assessment of an individual “state of mind with respect to attachment” can give us information about the patient's patterns of relationship and their level of flexibility (Main, Kaplan and Cassidy, 1985; Main, 1995).
