Abstract
: Prior integrative reminiscence interventions have had a limited focus on attachment themes. The attachmentfocused integrative reminiscence (AFIR) intervention differs from these in its central emphasis on attachment themes. The wide range of health benefits resulting from integrative reminiscence may be due in part to reminiscing about, mourning, and integrating unresolved attachment experiences.
