Part Two

 

Part one
Attachment: The neuroscience, psychology and why it can tell us so much about mental health and ill- health Enabling insecurely attached children and young people to become securely attached.

This part of the webinar will explore the neuroscience and psychology of attachment, and why it matters that all child professionals have this knowledge for both prevention of mental ill-health and intervention. In particular, the webinar will look at the relationship between insecure attachment and eating disorders, somatisation, anxiety and depression in children, teenagers and adults.

We have come such a long way from the 1960s when Bowlby ‘s attachment theory came into being. He didn’t have the neuroscience and the psychological research to back his profound model. We do now. So, this webinar is backed by over 100 cutting edge research papers (all available at the back of the webinar booklet

Additionally, the webinar gives specific focus to the fact that with secure attachment the child learns emotional regulation and with insecure attachment the child learns emotional suppression, with all the fall out of mental health symptoms in the teenage and adult years. That said, with an emotionally available adult, it is never too late for a child or young person to move from insecure to secure attachment,

With powerful film footage, the presenter will also unpack what we mean by the emotional responsiveness needed to ensure secure attachment and how child professionals can provide this where this has not been possible in the home.

Finally, Bowlby’s term, ‘internal working model’ will be explored in light of the fact that child professionals can bring such positive change to a child/young person’s negative views about self, others and the world.


Part Two
What we mean by attachment aware schools. The different attachment styles: Why it’s vital we know Avoidant, Anxious and Disorganised

In this section of the webinar, the presenter will address what we mean by attachment -aware schools and organisations, in comparison to attachment -unaware schools and organisations. Practical interventions will be provided to support schools and other settings to ensure they are attachment -aware, proven to impact positively on behaviour, attainment, mental health and even the immune system.

The presenter will then look at each attachment style in terms of origins, presenting symptoms and behaviour, impact on quality of life and whether the child is likely to grow up loving in peace or loving in torment. Viewers will feel empowered to recognise attachment styles and to address the unmet emotional needs of those children and teenagers who are anxious, or avoidant attached. Again, the presenter will address practical ways of supporting children and young people to move from insecure attachment to secure attachment.
