We know that good mental health begins early in life, and is particularly influenced by our relationships with our primary caregivers. This relationship between parent and child is referred to as an attachment.

Sometimes this attachment can be secure and healthy, but for around 30% of the population, their attachment is insecure and can lead to mental health difficulties later in life. Event hosted by ‘The British Psychological Society, NI”

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.

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 attach-ment 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.

Practitioners will learn how to use this flexible programme for group and individual work and how to use a suite of validated measures to evaluate impact.
