Child Development and Attachment

This 5 hour fascinating and thought provoking course will help learners to understand the challenging emotional and social behaviours that some children and young people may be presenting and acting out within their organisational setting. Learners will explore typical patterns of child development and how varying levels of attachment can influence a child’s development.  Strategies to support children displaying atypical behaviours due to living with an insecure attachment will be considered in depth. Learners will also explore the importance of play and create strategies to build resilience with those children displaying difficult emotional and social behaviours. The course will include time for discussion,  the sharing of ideas and exploring real 'cases' together.
