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

This two-day conference brings together leading international and local experts to examine in detail how patterns of addictive, anxious or depressive behaviour can pass from generation to generation. It explores how the impact of trauma can be passed from one generation to the next and considers the contribution across the spectrum, from learned behaviours through vicarious andsecondary trauma to transmission at the genetic level. A great opportunity for learning and networking. From our Associates ‘Action Trauma (NI)’.
