This webinar will explain the importance of secure attachment experiences for a child’s healthy growth and development. The relationship between a young child and their primary caregiver provides the foundation for all future relationships. For children to develop trust in the world, their caregivers must meet their needs in a loving and appropriate manner, and must provide them with a safe and secure base. But what happens when attachment is compromised due to abuse, neglect or parental instability? This webinar will begin with an overview of the attachment process between a child and primary caregiver. Participants will learn how to recognize healthy attachment patterns, and the devastating impact that disrupted attachments have on children and their families. Participants will also understand the behaviors that indicate a positive attachment and specific techniques and strategies to enhance attachment.
