UK Attachment Network

Dr Kathy Carnelley

Senior Lecturer in Psychology, University of Southampton.


I conduct research on adult attachment and am interested in affect regulation (e.g., pain reactions, physiological responses, depression), attachment networks, exploring working models of self and others, and finding methods to increase attachment security (e.g., repeated security priming) and well-being.

Dr Erica Hepper

Lecturer in Psychology, University of Surrey


My research examines individual differences in self-relevant emotions and motivation in social context. For example, I am interested in the consequences of self-enhancement motivation and narcissistic personality for interpersonal relationships, the experience and functions of nostalgia within close relationships, and the interplay between attachment orientation and the regulation of self and emotions.

Dr Abigail Millings

Lecturer, University of Sheffield


I study processes of attachment in human relationships, and how these affect a wide range of behaviours, including but not limited to: caring for others; help-seeking and engaging in therapy; and relating to social robots. I am also interested in how attachment and caregiving research can inform the implementation of assistive technologies, including computerised cognitive behavioral therapy.
