Learn step by step how and why attachment behaviour develops and changes over the first three years of life by observing real interactions between infants and their carers. As the various stages of attachment behaviour unfold, you will gain a real understanding of what this looks like and how it works in practice. You will also be able to see how a secure attachment supports a child’s healthy social and emotional development.
The documentary sequences are inter-cut with commentary by Dr. Per Olaf Svanberg, consultant clinical psychologist. He underpins the sequences with the latest research and theory in a relaxed and accessible manner that allows you to easily link all of the theory to your practice. Svanberg also explores the implications of insecure attachments.
The accompanying notes include questions, discussion topics and observations to do, together with theory and research relevant to each particular stage of development. There is also a transcript of the films commentary and a recommended reading list.
