Training workshop

Sir Richard Bowlby

Before his formal retirement, Sir Richard worked as a scientific photographer in various medical research institutions  He now gives lectures to healthcare professionals to promote a much broader understanding of his father’s work on attachment theory.  In 2004 he gave the opening lecture at the Winnicott Memorial Lecture; and this was published in book form by Karnac, “Fifty Years of Attachment Theory”, on behalf of the Winnicott Clinic of Psychotherapy


Sir Richard will be leading this training on attachment theory.  His father, John Bowlby, famously pioneered attachment theory 50 years ago, which went on to become a dominant approach to understanding early psychological development, suggesting that small children need consistently sensitive and responsive carers if they are to form secure attachments and healthy relationships throughout life.

Sir Richard will provide personal insights and video footage of his father’s work from the “inside”, and discuss more recent developments and their implications for the future. He is keen to help counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists, health professionals, complementary therapists, parents and child-carers learn about, and deepen, their understanding of this core theory.  He will address the challenging issues we encounter when attachments in early development were problematic and how this can affect relationship patterns throughout life.
