Attachment Theory and Practice for Foster Carers
Chrysalis Care Fostering Excellence
Attachment Theory is one of the foundations of the fostering role. As humans, we all experience attachment with others and we each also have a particular attachment pattern, which is informed by our experiences. As children and young people who are looked after have usually experienced relationships with multiple significant others and also may have experienced dysfunctional attachments, their thoughts, feelings and behaviours related to others are inevitably affected.
This core training session will introduce you to key aspects of Attachment Theory and how it influences the communication and behaviour patterns of the children and young people who may be placed with you. If you already have an understanding of Attachment Theory and Practice, this course serves as a reinforcer/refresher of your existing knowledge and experiential base.
As with all of Chrysalis Care Learning Space courses, the content will consist of video/audio, powerpoint/handouts and an end of course worksheet, to enable you to demonstrate your learning. All courses are cross referenced to the TSD standards and as such, form key evidence for your learning portfolio.
We look forward to accompanying you on your learning journey.
