This subsidised half day course is designed for adopters and foster carers who wish to learn more about developing attachment in difficult to reach children. Children presenting with attachment problems experience difficulties in forming relationships. This may have occurred for a variety of reasons including inadequate previous parenting, abuse or multiple placements. The success of a future placement will be largely dependant on the child developing the ability to trust and gradually form a bond with carers. This is frequently a slow and sometimes frustrating process which requires patience and tolerance from adult carers.
During this short programme, delegates will learn basic skills to negotiate challenging situations with children and to use these instances as opportunities to grow attachments through astute and sensitive handling.
The workshop is informative, challenging and fun and will equip parents/carers with additional skills to develop attachment in difficult to reach children.
