An Introduction to Attachment and Resilience

Anchor 1

29 June 2024 at 09:00:00

Registration is from 9.30am


5 hours CPD

Course Description

Attachment has been described as “…an affectionate bond between two individuals that endures through space and time and serves to join them emotionally” (Fahlberg, 1994)
The psychoanalytic social worker Selma Fraiberg poignantly commented that children who do not have an attachment “have been deprived of their humanity” (Fraiberg, 1977)
This training aspires to address our understanding of healthy attachment and what happens when its formation goes wrong. Even when a person hasn’t experienced secure attachment there is still hope. Increasingly attachment and resilience are shown to be interlinked and as we build our resilience the quality of our attachments improve. Although resilience can be thought of as innate it can also be a quality that is learned.
