Early Attachments - Influence Across the Life Span
One day skills workshop
Presented by Mirna Tarabay - Pschyotherapist, PACFA
What does attachment really mean and how does it apply to my work with children, young people and families? This question is increasingly becoming the subject of discussion as our understanding of the implications of attachment theory has grown immensely and now infiltrates many modalities of practice. Attachment Theory provides a rich basis for understanding how children’s early relationships affect their physical, psychological, social and cognitive development. This is supported by decades of research. These early relationships often referred to as ‘nurture’ or ‘social environment’ are seen to have long lasting implications.
This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to;
Explore attachment theory and what it means for child development
Understand the classifications of attachment
Discuss the implications of adverse early care including trauma, abuse and neglect
Discuss ways to support the emotional development of children who have experienced adverse early care
Explore the role of positive relational experiences in repairing neurological structures
Who should attend?
Anyone who works with children, young people and families including teachers, child care staff, family support, refuge workers, early intervention, child protection workers and counsellors.
