In the first week of November you will be sent a copy of the AAI protocol and other materials in
preparation for the training.
Upon receiving your AAI protocol, you are asked to conduct an Adult Attachment Interview with
someone (not a client) and be interviewed yourself by a friend. If at all possible, please transcribe
the interview that you give. This is because only your own transcription will allow you to fully
“hear” and review your work. More detailed instructions regarding how to transcribe will be sent
with the materials.
The interview which is administered to you does not need to be conducted by a professional, and
does not need to be transcribed. A friend can read you the questions. The experience of having
been interviewed is, however, vital to your understanding of the method.
