This Part 2 workshop (and Part 1 workshop on 8 July 2019) will give attendees both the foundational knowledge as well as a more detailed outline of everyday clinical practice of attachment.
This Part 2 workshop will aim to provide a more detailed update on the recent best practice guidelines on the assessment and treatments of attachment. It also aims to provide a professional space for consideration of how the new guidelines link in, and often create challenges, within clinical and therapeutic practice.
Attachment theory proposes that the child's need to be loved and nurtured is fundamental to their ability to feel safe in the world which allows them the emotional resilience to explore their world, achieving long-term physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. It is often difficult to match this theoretical knowledge of attachment to practice in busy services, who are frequently met with many financial and other resource issues. The two workshops will help consolidate the theoretical knowledge with practice guidelines, as well as create a space to consider the practical implications in clinical and other settings.
Participants can attend either Part 1 or Part 2 or both.
Both Part 1 and Part 2 workshops are presented from the clinical perspective of child and family practitioners but would be suitable for all psychologists, psychiatrists, teachers & other education colleagues, counsellors, therapists, emotional well-being nurses, looked after children’s nurses, fostering and adoption workers, mental health workers and social workers with an interest in the topic area. Part 1 will consider foundational attachment knowledge, linking in to more recent theoretical themes, whereas Part 2 is aimed at those clinicians who require a more detailed knowledge of everyday practice issues.
