Understanding Behaviour Issues Based on the Attachment Theory – VIRTUAL

Studies have confirmed that developing secure attachment relationships is critical for the healthy development of young children, including those in group child care settings. However, the relationships between early childhood educators and children differ from those between parents and children, so applying attachment theory in group child care settings can be challenging.


This workshop will guide early childhood educators to understand their  crucial roles in developing attachment relationships while discussing different kinds of attachment types and start discussions on strategies for developing attachment relationships with children. Moreover, early childhood educators will have opportunities to connect common misbehaviors with different attachment styles to increase opportunities to apply attachment theory when working with young children.


This workshop is designed for early childhood educators, especially those who work with infants and toddlers in group child care settings.
