Karen Doyle Buckwalter sits down for an interview with Dr. Miriam Steele as they discuss adoption and attachment.
Dr. Steele is a Professor of Psychology, Director of Clinical Psychology at The New School for Social Research, and Co-Director of the Center For Attachment Research.
Dr. Steele's research began with the study “Intergenerational Patterns of Attachment,” which embodied one of the first prospective longitudinal studies incorporating the Adult Attachment Interviews and Strange Situation protocols. Dr. Steel's current main area of research is an NIH funded study on the efficacy of an innovative attachment-based intervention with high-risk families, a collaborative venture with colleagues at the Rose Kennedy Center, Albert Einstein School of Medicine.
