Using Attachment Theory when working with Challenging Behaviour

Training courses for all working with children and young people who display challenging behaviour

This 1 day course for all of those who work with children who display challenging behaviour, including the exploration many different aspects of attachment theory and the implications it has for developing children.

The modern world is not conducive to good positive, secure attachments, with more and more children developing insecure attachments, which affects the way these children function and view the world.

Avoidant, ambivalent and  dis-organised attachment styles of developing children not only leads to emotional and social, problems, but also result in limiting the development of children’s brains.

The neurobiological consequences of emotional neglect can leave children behaviourally disordered, depressed, apathetic, slow to learn, and prone to chronic illness. Compared to securely attached children, attachment disordered children are significantly more likely to be aggressive, disruptive and antisocial.

This course is for social workers, teachers, health workers, residential workers, au-pairs, child minders, nursery workers and any other professional who comes into contact with children who display challenging behaviours.

This course meets the requirements of the National Minimum Standards for all those working and caring for children.
