Attachment Disorders Part 1: Understanding and Defining Attachment and Trauma

 

Mental health professionals know that the structure and function of the infant-caregiver relationship creates the fundamental building blocks of life-span development. During this sensitive period of development, the infant/toddler will learn to become comfortably attached to their caregiver and as a result the brain will organize into an optimal learning “machine.” But what happens when the infant-caregiver relationship is not healthy? In this course, you will learn about Attachment Disorder, a condition that occurs in many children who experience abuse, neglect and chaos at the hands of their caregivers during infancy and early childhood. In Part 1 of this course, you will receive an overview of past and current research and theories on the process of attachment; an understanding of the impact of early exposure to trauma on brain development and the attachment process; a symptoms check list of attachment problems; and a description of some long-term consequences for a child with AD. In the second course, you will receive suggestions for diagnostic tools of attachment disorder; details of evidenced-based and emerging interventions for attachment problems; plus suggestions for effective ways of communicating with parents who are raising a child with AD, as well as parenting practices to share with them. The complete course set will not qualify you to conduct attachment evaluations; however, you will be well-equipped to identify and assess presenting attachment problems, practice attachment-sensitive therapy, and advise families who are struggling with a mal-attached child.
