Foundations for Attachment Training Resource: The Six-Session Programme for Parents of Traumatized Children


Product Description

Published UK, 2017
This new resource from Kim Golding is a six-session programme designed to help parents and carers nurture attachments with children after trauma, loss or separation. The book is informed by attachment theory and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP). The programme introduces parents to four significant challenges of parenting children whose capacity to emotionally connect with them has been compromised. Issues of blocked trust and shame are discussed as well as the child's fear of intersubjective connection within reciprocal relationships. The book is introduced by Dan Hughes and includes a code for downloading online activity sheets and handouts.
