Introduction to Attachment and Adolescence – what to look for and how to respond
Trainer: Dr Kathryn Whyte, Clinical Psychologist
For social workers, residential workers and education professionals to spend some time focussing on how to recognise and respond to attachment based difficulties in adolescents. During the session we focus on different presentations that might indicate the different behaviour and relationship strategies used by young people with insecure attachments. We will reflect on our own styles including what might have attracted us to working with young people and how this is linked to what challenges us in this work. There are small group activities to consider how to put learning into practice in your setting.
