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”

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.

Training provided by Baby Bonding Ireland in association with Big Toes Little Toes
