Developmental Perspective of Attachment with Children in Foster Care: Developing a Lens of Attachment throughout the Ages

Attachment provides a unique interpretive lens that enriches our ability to make developmentally sensitive recommendations that support children, parents, and foster parents. This four-part program provides grounding in attachment and evaluating the quality of child-parent relationships.  Professor George will introduce the principles of attachment theory and several gold standard attachment procedures that are used for assessing quality of attachment and care-giving relationships children, teens, and parents.  Each portion of the workshop will use case material to demonstrate the application of the principles and discuss how to integrate these principles in treatment.
