Center for Attachment Research (CAR) was established in 2004 with the arrival of Miriam Steele and Howard Steele to the Department of Psychology at The New School for Social Research. CAR is engaged in the application of attachment theory
to clinical and developmental research questions concerning child, parent, and family development. CAR initiatives involve New School for Social Research, Parsons, Lang, and other New School students and faculty, as well as ongoing collaborations
with senior consultants and colleagues in New York and internationally.
CAR is currently engaged in a range of projects. The primary project involves studying the effectiveness of a Group Attachment Based Intervention provided to vulnerable families in the Bronx. This project is supported by and conducted in affiliation
with colleague Anne Murphy at The Early Child Care Center at The Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Other projects include research on the intergenerational transmission of body image and a wide range of projects investigating gender non-conforming
identities, intersectional identities, and the possible protective role against minority stress that secure attachment and reflective functioning may serve.
