Renowned scholars from diverse international backgrounds will present insights gleaned from theoretical, experimental, and clinical perspectives, fostering a comprehensive understanding of the profound impact of early caregiving experiences on individuals' socioemotional and cognitive development throughout the lifespan. 

Rooted in the seminal attachment theory by Bowlby (1969), the course will present the scientific endeavours of researchers from different disciplines aimed at unravelling the intricate neurobiological, cognitive and social mechanisms shaping human development. The attachment theory posits that infants construct internal working models (IWMs; Pietromonaco & Barrett, 2000), which act as rudimentary cognitive templates for future interactions, shaping expectations about the self, others, and relationships. We will trace the development and the expansion of the theory across different disciplines and learn about its applications in understanding typical and atypical development, in a cross-cultural framework.
