Parent-Child Attachment Play (PCAP), 28th and 29th Marc, 2020, Maldron Hotel, Oranmore, County Galway
Parent-Child Attachment Play (PCAP) is a very innovative and empowering early help attachment programme for parents and their children from 3-15+. It can be delivered with groups, 1:1 or through a home-visiting model. Parents and carers are often concerned about their children’s behaviour and that by adopting a playful attachment approach they will somehow lose control over their family life. In fact, the opposite is true. When the parent-child relationship is working, helpful child behaviour generally follows and family life becomes more manageable.
This 10-step programme is based on the latest attachment research which shows that supporting the parent-child attachment relationship sets the scene for the best outcomes for children right into adulthood.
PCAP involves sharing three skills with parents and carers through interactive workshop-style sessions;
1. Play (and the creation of a shoebox or bag of toys/activities designed around the preferences of the child)
2. Containment (managing time, environment, emotions and helping children to make helpful choices)
3. Head, Heart and Hands (an attachment tool based on evidence-based Reflective Functioning
Courses are targeted towards professionals working with children and families not parents.
