Abstract This experimental study aims to change insecure attachment at 13 months into secure attachment at 19 months by a Professional Intervention with video-feedback and advice at 14-17 months. The participants in this study are first-time adoptive mothers and their children, internationally adopted between 6 and 12 months. Dyads insecurely attached at 13 months are randomly assigned to the experimental or the dummy-control-group and the experimental group receives a short-term Intervention, aiming to enhance maternal sensitive responsiveness. A pilot-group (N=6) will be described and two case studies will illustrate the Intervention. An insecure-avoidant (A) child and an insecure-ambivalent (C) child both became securely attached (B) to their mother at 19 months.
