Abstract

This program guide is constructed based on a review of attachment theory, the reflective function, adult attachment narratives, and Playback theatre. Integrating Playback theatre, drama therapeutic exercises, and relevant theory related to attachment work, this original program guide serves to benefit mothers who have been indicated as having insecure attachment narratives by the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI). The 20-week, five-stage program intends to promote the reconstruction of attachment narratives, increase empathy and the reflective function, and facilitate insight into attachment experiences. Reflective functioning, a concept that has been shown to be fundamental in the attachment process, and empathy are promoted in the program by integrating the mothers in the Playback theatre process as actors. The group therapy structure also serves to promote secure attachment relationships and change the perceptions and expectations of personal relationships. Playback theatre is an effective modality for mothers with insecure attachment narratives as it facilitates an exploration of personal stories. Playback theatre offers a non-judgmental and respectful forum where stories are given a chance to be told, witnessed, and transformed in an aesthetic and powerful way. From member referrals to program evaluation, the program guide outlines necessary elements and steps needed to implement the program in a variety of settings.
