Attachment Informed Practice Training




What exactly is Attachment Theory?  What does a child with strong attachment look like?  What are the consequences for school staff who support children with weak attachments and where their relationships with key adults have been fractured?


This important training will be split into 3 sessions:


Session One :  The Theory of Attachment – to understand the theoretical origins of attachment theory and to briefly introduce the four main attachment styles


Session Two:  The Impact of Adversity on Attachment – to highlight the importance of early relationships and brain development


Session Three:  Attachment in Schools – to consider the relevance of attachment theory on children’s learning, behaviour and relationships in school and to consider the importance of a secure base and how this is achieved within your organisation.


The training via Zoom is delivered by experienced staff from The Mulberry Bush School in Oxfordshire, an Outstanding Special School and Children’s home providing specialist therapeutic care, treatment and education for traumatised children aged 5-13 and their families from across England and Wales.  It is designed for anyone working with children, young people and their parents/carers.


The training itself will be delivered in two hour slots, every two weeks between 13:00-15:00 and the dates are:


Session One :  Tuesday  15 September 2020

Session Two:   Tuesday 29 September 2020
