Overview

In this session, participants will learn how to recognize markers in the dyad that define the attachment relationship and the infant’s developing stress response system. Using an observational framework and tool, participants will learn how to observe the caregiver’s behaviour pattern when their infant cues distress. Once completed, the tool can then be actively used to support the caregiver to promote the development of security for the child, foster a co-regulation relationship, and mitigate developmental trauma.

Learning Objectives

In this session, participants will:

  • Learn more about how the infant and caregiver negotiate security in their relationship to develop secure, insecure and/or disorganized attachment. 
  • Use an observational framework to help identify treatment interventions needed in the dyad. 
  • Discuss how the observational framework can support conversations with caregivers to help them better understand and use the interventions.
