Attachment: A Relationship for Life

The focus of this workshop will be on understanding the concept of attachment, the various factors that influence the attachment relationship, and the long-term implications of this relationship for child development. Workshop participants will learn the “language of attachment,” what attachment “looks” like in infants, toddlers, and young children, how to support parents in promoting healthy attachment relationships with their children, some ideas for talking to parents about attachment, tips for recognizing when families need additional support with attachment issues, and what to do for families with young children who are struggling with attachment.
