Understanding the functionality in an attachment relationship, how it is impacted by trauma and by caring relationships

About this event

You are the Strategy! is a 3 hour workshop designed for those who care for children, primarily foster parents but also support workers and those who directly support children in caregiving. Using material from attachment and Circle of Security, we will gain an understanding of a child’s attachment strategy for staying safe in relationship, understand how trauma affects this, and learn how we meet a child’s emotional needs. This workshop is aimed at foster parents, support workers, teachers, educational assistants and child care professionals.


  • To understand the differences in attachment patterns and that those are protective strategies
  • To learn how trauma alters our understanding of what is safe and what is dangerous
  • To gain knowledge of how to meet a child’s emotional needs, which in turn, affect a child’s behaviour
