Course description

Central to the mental wellbeing of the young child in the early years setting is safety in the relationships the child forms with early years practitioners. 

This keynote address explores the role of the key person as a secondary attachment figure, the impact of a child’s insecure attachment profile on their ability to relate to adults and the subsequent impact on the early years practitioner’s mental and physical wellbeing.

In this conference we will create the opportunity for you to:

  • Deepen your understanding of the emotional dynamics involved in your practice
  • Take away key strategies that support your secondary attachment relationship with the young child
  • Be guided on aspects of self-care and supervision that support the practitioner’s emotional wellbeing
  • Learn the key indicators of relational trauma and how we identify subtle ‘shifts’ in their emotional growth through our relationship with the child
  • Take away Cath’s top five therapeutic strategies to use on a 1:1 with the child and with each other so everyone feels nurtured
  • Access a copy of the adapted checklist (linked to the Early Adopter framework ELGs)
  • Receive resources that are designed for transferable CPD for your team.
