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.

This training is for practitioners who wish to extend their work to babies/toddlers and their parents/carers using a simple attachment approach.  The programme is based on the very latest research mechanisms which show us how caregivers change and how attachment is operationalised in practice. The programme is designed to intervene early (in the first 1001 days) when attachment internal working models are being formed or are most likely to change.
