Using Attachment as a Lens for Child Welfare Practice
Tags: Children, Child Care, Child Care Workers
This 3-hour workshop will deepen the understanding of attachment patterns in our clients, using Circle of Security as a model to understand our role in assisting our clients, and the clients’ defenses against our interventions. This knowledge will inform case planning decisions for the children of concern plus the adult clients. This workshop is aimed at front-line child welfare workers and their supervisors, or for those involved in child welfare matters in court.
- To understand attachment patterns; how they are defensive or protective patterns
- To understand how trauma alters our attachment trajectory
- To have a model to understand our actions/reactions to our clients
