Observing Children with Attachment Difficulties in Preschool Settings

A tool for identifying and supporting emotional and social difficulties

Product Description

Published UK, 2013
For preschool children with emotional difficulties arising from difficulties in attachment, standard observations used in early years settings are not always helpful in identifying their problems and providing guidance on how they can be helped. Combining an accessible introduction to attachment and child development with a child observation tool for identifying behaviour, and the emotional needs underlying this behaviour, this book enables early years professionals to identify problems and provide appropriate support. Case Study boxes help to illustrate typical patterns of attachment and all aspects of behaviour are covered including play, interaction with peers, neediness and aggression. A range of handouts and activities is included and guidance provided on how to work within professional boundaries.

Ages 2-5 years
Jain Fain, a co-author, is an early years practitioner supporting the transition of children into school.
