Introduction: Introduction to Attachment and the Emotional Needs of Children.
Understanding attachment and the emotional needs of children is imperative for any professional working with children and families. In this short course we will be discussing the various emotional needs of children and practical hands on ways in which parents can meet these needs. We discuss the link between the emotional needs of children and the formation of secure attachment and then venture into deconstructing the definition of attachment. Delegates will receive a sound theoretical understanding of attachment, the different attachment styles or styles of relating and how these influence the child’s internal working model and subsequent behaviour. Broad outline of relevant factors to consider when evaluating attachment is also discussed.
