Epstein, Orit Badouk (London/UK)

From proximity seeking to relationship seeking Working towards separation from the abusive group

As with all insecure attachment styles, the clinical work with the preoccupied/disorganised clients often entails the gathering of internal and external records of the accumulative traumatic events and dysregulatory experiences, sustained early on in life by their care givers that can only give rise to forces that interfere with the client’s movement towards mental wellbeing.

Shimony, Michal (Herzliya/ Israel)

Attachment theory and group processes: The association between attachment style and group-related representations, goals, memories, and functioning

According to attachment theory, the availability of caring, supportive relationship partners, beginning in infancy, is extremely important for the development of a sense of attachment security (confidence that one is competent and lovable and that others will be available and supportive when needed), which in turn fosters the development of stable self-esteem, constructive coping strategies, maintenance of mental health, and formation of mutually satisfying relationships throughout life.

Stetten, Lina (Bielefeld/Germany)

The process of radicalization in the context of extremist groups.

"Not only in Germany, but also in the whole world, people were terrified by events such as the amok, school shootings and terroristic acts. These are highly expressive acts of violence that, in addition to their direct consequences for victims, also cause general feeling of endangerment for the whole society. This feeling of threat anchors especially in the unpredictability of these kind of acts..."
