Attachment in Adoption
This training reviews Attachment Theory and will:
- Discuss adult attachments
- Build concrete skills in developing attachments for children in foster care and children adopted out of foster care
- Help participants to view behaviors through an attachment lens
Building attachment with a your current or future child is essential to stabilizing the family in the short or long-term. Successful parents benefit from understanding how the attachment dynamic functions in all relationships; especially the one they have with their children.
