Attachment behaviours in children and parents after the lockdown 

SKU: AttachmentPostLockdown

Course description

The pandemic has put additional stressors on the family unit, leading to significant changes in attachment behaviours. 

Attachment is an in-built mechanism that guarantees the protection of the infant and their optimal development, but it is also activated whenever a threat is perceived. How do we use this awareness to work with parents/carers and children at this significant time? 

During the course we will:

  • Look at some of the most recent research on the impact of the pandemic on attachment behaviours
  • Explore the idea of the family having an individual personality where members affect each other
  • Plan attachment-based strategies to settle children back into our settings or support them to move on
  • Consider the central role of the Key Person in establishing trusting relationships with parents/carers and children
