Ambassador Spotlight: Dr. Marlene Moretti


On July 18th, Vancouver welcomed individuals from all over the world to participate in the 2019 International Attachment Conference, hosted by the Society for Emotion and Attachment Studies (SEAS).  This meeting successfully drew approximately 600 people who had the chance to see what national and international leaders are showcasing in the field of attachment and its application to understanding and promoting child, adolescent and adult health, as well as their well-being. 

Dr. Marlene Moretti, recipient of the 2015 BC Premier’s Award for Innovation, acted as the local ambassador to bring this meeting to Vancouver. 


Dr. Moretti is a Professor at Simon Fraser University in the Department of Psychology.  She specializes in youth clinical psychological science and adolescent health.  Her research interests include developmental psychopathology, violence and aggression, sex and gender differences, attachment, self-regulation, intervention for children and adolescents, program evaluation and knowledge translation. 

We would like to send our appreciation to Dr. Moretti, the organizing committee and other program chairs for showcasing our beautiful city.
