BUILDING THE BONDS OF ATTACHMENT: AWAKENING LOVE IN TRAUMATISED CHILDREN with International Attachment Expert Dr Dan Hughes

About the conference

Dan Hughes is world-leading practitioner in healing troubled children. On this day he will inspire delegates, by demonstrating his breathtaking way of relating to children. He will speak about how he makes profound connection, not over months and years but from the very first meeting. He will explore how to connect with children who suffer from developmental trauma after years of abuse and neglect. He will demonstrate how to ensure that the child feels psychologically safe in the relationship before addressing painful life events. He will discuss how the words we choose in these often life-changing conversations with children really matter. In so doing, he will model the use of simple, beautiful, poetic but profound language that melts the hearts of even the most highly defended. Dan will also discuss the underpinning theoretical model to his work: the integration of attachment theory and research, trauma theory (neuroscience and psychology), the general principles of positive parenting, together with child and family therapy.

What you'll learn from attending

  • Take away key therapeutic conversational tools and techniques that can be applied to any work setting
  • Learn how to connect with children who no longer trust adults
  • Understand how to build secure attachments when working with troubled and traumatised children and teenagers
  • Learn about relational change through the use of PACE (play, acceptance, curiosity, empathy), narrative medicine, the processing of painful life experiences so that they no longer haunt the child, engaging children, often for the first time, in social joy.

Who should attend?

Anyone working or living with troubled children including teachers, therapists, social workers, care workers, educational psychologists, adoptive parents and foster carers.
