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.

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.
