Child Foster Care Training & Support

  1. Understanding and Building Attachment (6 hours) - Part 1

    May 19, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Government Center

    This training focuses on the initiation and development of attachment in children, and is designed for licensed foster caregivers with placement experience. The first half of the training distinguishes the 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 will be asked to consider attachment patterns and formulate strategies to maintain/build attachment with their foster children.
