  1. Time: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

924-FF7-S Understanding and Building Attachment

Date: Saturday, August 4th, 2018 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Facilitator: Angie Irby
Location: Cornerstone Building 402 2nd Street S.E. Canton, Ohio 44702

This workshop is designed for licensed foster caregivers with placement experience and focuses on the initiation and development of attachment in children. The first half of the training distinguishes characteristics of secure attachment from those of insecure attachment, and provides information on how the crisis created by separation and placement impacts and is impacted by the child’s attachment pattern. Because research demonstrates that the most consistent predictors of secure attachment are caregiver variables, the last half of the workshop presents a template for parenting children with insecure attachment. Participants will be provided with case scenarios and asked to consider attachment patterns and formulate strategies to maintain/build attachment with their foster children. This workshop can be presented in one six-hour session or two three-hour sessions. If presented in two parts, trainees must commit to attend both sessions.
