Introduction to Attachment

The attachment workshop is for those adults who have covered basic attachment theory, either through our Introduction to Mental Health workshop, or through another training provider, and want to learn more about attachment and how to support children who struggle with learning due to their early experiences of trauma and loss. Delegates will leave with practical strategies to use in their setting.

 

Course Summary

 

Delivered by clinical professionals, this two hour workshop provides delegates with an overview of attachment theory and its application to the understanding of children with emotional, behavioural or social difficulties which interfere with their learning. The workshop will build on previous training, providing further practical tools for adults to better understand the experiences of the children in their care and better ways of managing areas of concern. Delegates will leave with practical strategies firmly rooted in the research of attachment theory and in tried and tested practice in schools. These strategies can easily be integrated into the life of a busy classroom, leaving delegates feeling more confident to offer solutions in their setting.
