£155.00 + VAT

SKU: N/A Category:


This course looks at the fundamentals of Attachment theory such as brain development, the Attachment cycle, symptoms and presenting behaviours associated with insecure Attachment. Knowledge of attachment is now recognised as important for those who work with children and young people. Attachment theory provides a vital development framework for making sense of the behaviour of children who have experienced adverse childhood experiences. Complex trauma means that very often they have developed maladaptive coping strategies that need to be undone so they can relearn appropriate skills for social integration.

This course is full of practical interventions and strategies to support children and adolescents with Attachment disorders.
