Description

In this engaging one-hour webinar, we will explore the intricate world of infant attachment, highlighting the brilliant and adaptive nature of various attachment styles. While secure attachment is often emphasized, understanding the complexities of avoidant, ambivalent, and disorganized attachment styles is equally crucial for professionals working with young children and their families. This session will examine how these attachment styles develop as adaptive responses to a child's environment, offering practical insights and strategies for supporting healthy attachment relationships. Participants will learn to address the challenges associated with insecure attachment patterns and enhance their practice in fostering the mental well-being of young children.
