Child Attachment Play Assessment Training is a doll play procedure designed to assess children aged 3 – 11 years in terms of attachment strategies, developmental trauma, mentalising and depression. It has been developed for use with children from very troubled backgrounds and assists practitioners in formulating intervention plans most likely to succeed. The first 4 days cover the normative insecure patterns of attachment followed by a break with the second 4 days of training covering the clinical examples of attachment, trauma and depression

The CAPA was developed by Dr Steve Farnfield; founder and convenor of the Attachment Studies programmes at the University of Roehampton U.K. Dr. Farnfield is co-editor of the 3 volume Routledge Handbooks of Attachment. He is also a licensed trainer for a wide range of DMM assessment procedures. For further details, cost and to book, Click on the Link Below

The Child Attachment and Play Assessment

 

Practitioners will learn skills to be able to run Heart to heart sessions, a fun and effective early help attachment programme for parents, carers and their children or teens to attend together.  It can be delivered with groups, 1:1 or through a home-visiting model and is split across two approximate age ranges; 5-9 years and 10-15 years. This flexible 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.  Adolescence can be a challenging time for parents and carers and this programme offers an ideal opportunity to share and experience new and empowering evidence-based knowledge with families.

The Maldron Hotel offers a 10% discount for those staying at the venue.

Parent-Child Attachment Play training:

for parents and carers of school-aged children

This is a gentle play-based approach aimed at improving the attachment quality of the parent-child relationship using attachment mechanisms and child-oriented play with parents/carers and their children aged 3-15+ years.

This highly-regarded training is set within the very new and groundbreaking research into what we now know about how parents change and how secure attachment is operationalised in the earliest relationship.  It represents an ideal opportunity to bring positive relationship change directly into the family home by empowering parents and carers as change agents.

This approach deals directly with the transmission gap problem, well-documented in the literature.

This course is accredited by The CPD Standards Office UK and offers 12 points towards professional registration requirements.
