Patricia McKinsey Crittenden

Patricia McKinsey Crittenden is a developmental psychopathologist who worked with Mary Ainsworth at the University of Virginia to develop the Dynamic-Maturational Model (DMM) of attachment and adaptation. She pioneered video-feedback with maltreating mothers in the early 1970s, ran a family support centre, trained as a behavioural and family systems therapist, was the Director of the Miami Child Protection Team, and consulted to family courts in several countries. She has developed a life-span series of assessments of attachment. In 2004, she was given a Career Achievement Award by the European Family Therapy Association. She has published more than 100 empirical papers and chapters, as well as several books, and is the founding Chair of The International Association for the Study of Attachment.
