The training begins with a description of Bowlby’s attachment theory including key concepts and characteristics and developmental stages. There will be a description of both securely and insecurely attached parents and their parenting style and the characteristics of securely and insecurely attached children. This includes how to recognise and work with children with a variety of insecure attachments styles.
