70 Years of Attachment Research:
A Multidisciplinary Social Neuroscience Perspective

On August 12-13, 2020, we organised a virtual conference workshop with the title “70 Years of Attachment Research: A Multidisciplinary Social Neuroscience Perspective”.

The workshop is part of ongoing activities of the Special Interest Research Group (SIRG) on The Social Neuroscience of Human Attachment (SoNeAt) as part of the Society for Emotion and Attachment Studies (SEAS), co-hosted by SoNeAt coordinating board president Pascal Vrtička (University of Essex, UK). It was organised in cooperation with Tsachi Ein-Dor (IDC Herzliya, Israel), PI of a new longitudinal and multidisciplinary venture called Project Alpha, investigating the genetic and epigenetic underpinnings of psychological development, comprising parent-child attachment.

The conference workshop was held over zoom and organised within the time zones of British Summer Time (BST, UTC +1) and Israel Daylight Time (IDT, UTC +3).

In our workshop, we brought together experts from various fields of attachment around the globe, providing insights into the last 70 years of theory development and research, with a special focus on social neuroscience.
