Attachment Awareness Overview:
Attachment theory is centred on the emotional bonds between people, and suggests that our earliest attachments can leave a lasting mark on our lives. Researchers have found that attachment patterns established early in life can lead to a number of outcomes. This 3 hour introductory course outlines a basic understanding of what attachment is, and how it may impact on the relationships and behaviour of children within a care environment.
