Optional Session Red: How to Support Attachment and Bonding in the New Family with Abby Bordner
Brain science research and Psychology confirm that the experiences in the first five years lay the foundation for later development, learning, and behaviors. Most important are the experiences in relationship with baby’s primary caregivers, mainly parents. Healthy early attachment and bonding requires responsive behaviors from parents and an understanding of children’s emotional and physical needs. In this presentation you’ll learn healthy attachment behaviors and how to educate and support parents to best respond to their baby’s needs.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Describe healthy attachment behaviors.
- Explain the importance of early attachment and bonding.
- Identify behaviors that compromise early attachment.
