Description

Our Understanding Attachment Disorder course is ideal for Foster Carers and Social Workers.

Attachment is a deep and enduring emotional bond that connects one person to another across time and space. This emotional bond between infant and caregiver is the means by which the helpless infant gets their primary needs met. The attachment experience affects personality development and the ability to form stable relationships throughout life, so it is vital that an attachment disorder is identified and treated through therapeutic parenting. The early experience of the infant stimulates the growth of the brain and shapes emerging mental processes. Neuroscientists believe that attachment is of such primal importance that the brain has networks of neurons dedicated to setting it in motion.

Positive attachment provides the infant’s first coping system, which becomes a foundation for all the others. Healthy attachment nurtures the child’s ability to eventually separate from the caregiver and survive independently.

Learning Aims: 

  1. Understand the key principles of attachment and bonding which are critical for healthy development
  2. Understand how healthy attachment is facilitated
  3. Understand the various ways that neglect and abuse negatively influence attachment, exploring the consequent challenging behaviours
  4. Understand how foster carers can help children with attachment difficulties

This course is for Foster Carers and Adopters as well as their Supervising Social Workers. It is also suitable for Residential Child Care Workers (RCCW) and residential team managers from mainstream, short-breaks and outreach services.

This option is aimed at an audience with prior knowledge of the subject and isn’t suitable for.  Those that are new to the subject would be better with our standard course.

Need more time?

We recognise that sometimes groups need more time for discussions and group work. This can mean that a two-hour session is just not long enough to explore the curriculum and engage in question and answer sessions. So we are you offering the opportunity to extend the session by an hour to allow your trainees the chance to explore the curriculum fully!
