The Impact of Attachment on Childhood: Implications for those Working with Individuals from Childhood to Adulthood

This theoretical workshop on Attachment Theory explores the impact of disrupted attachment on the emotional and social systems of children, and how this affects behaviour and relationships from childhood to adulthood. Participants will look at the impact of relational trauma on the developing brain (neuropsychology) and the importance of understanding oneself as an adult worker to allow for greater effectiveness when working with children and their families.

  • An understanding of the basic framework of Attachment Theory;
  • A basic understanding of the neurobiology of attachment and the impact of trauma;
  • A better understanding of the impact of disrupted attachment on the emotional, social and cognitive systems of a child and how this affects behaviour and learning;
