Description

Course outline and aims

Attachment theory offers professionals an important insight into understanding the people we work with, as well as help in understanding our own responses and feelings when working with people with learning disabilities or autism. Respond is expert in working with young people and adults who often present with profound attachment disorders, often as a consequence of abuse and trauma. The course provides an in-depth introduction to attachment theory from Bowlby to Fonagy, an insight into trauma and attachment and equips professionals with the skills of practical application of attachment theory
