Attachment builds connection
Who is this workshop for?
This course is suitable for anyone wanting to develop their knowledge and understanding of attachment, including counsellors, psychotherapists, teaching staff, early years practitioners and those in professions supporting and working with children, families, couples or individual adults. The course looks at the interplay between our earliest experiences of relationships with others and brain development in early childhood. The foundations built in the first few years of life can have a lasting impact on future development. Understanding the neuroscience behind attachment and the development of self-regulation skills will have a huge impact on how you think about relationships and behaviour.
Aims of the course
- To develop an understanding of how our early life experiences impact our personal, social and emotional development across the life course.
- To reflect on our own experiences of relationship and consider how this may impact our interactions with those around us.
- To consider the implications of this understanding for our work with others.
