Attachment Level 1: Theory

A healthy attachment between an infant and loving parents or caregivers creates a lasting sense of security and safety for the child.  This allows for optimal growth, development, relationships and ultimately learning. When the attachment relationship is disrupted or fails to develop, children feel insecure, unsafe and anxious.  Not only does a person’s behavior develop under the influence of attachment but actual brain development is affected by early attachment interactions.

The goal of this workshop is to give an understanding of how these early attachments affect our actions throughout life. Through presentations, stories, videotapes and small groups, participants will learn to identify different types of attachment patterns. Ultimately, understanding the attachment model of counselling helps provide valuable insight and skill to those of us who are in therapeutic, education and caregiving roles.

Attachment Level 2: Applications & Techniques

Following Level One, this workshop will focus on enhancing service providers observation skills, strengthening their knowledge of developmental ages and stages, and using the Attachment, Regulation, and Competency Model to explore age specific interventions for differing attachment patterns. The focus will be on observation skills, applying the theory learned in Level one  to clinical examples, and exploring general attachment interventions, as well as age specific parent/child and individual child interventions using the Attachment, Regulation, and Competency Model.
