Attachment is important in successful adoptions. More than important, it is crucial. The focus, however, is usually on the child attaching to the parent, when in fact, attachment is a two way street. Just as important as the child attaching to the parent is the parent attaching the child.
Parents and social workers need to understand the parent’s attachment style in order to facilitate healthy attachment and healthy adoptions. Creating a Family is hosting a webinar with Dr. Dan Siegel, who literally wrote the book on the importance of parental attachment style.
Dr. Siegel is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, and New York Times bestselling author of The Whole-Brain Child and Parenting from the Inside Out.
Webinar discussion topics will include:
- Key components of a secure parental attachment
- How parental attachment styles impact an adopted child’s attachment
- Ways to assess parental attachments
- Tips for improving parental attachments
- And more….
