Pre-course requirements 

Course objectives
By the end of the course particpants will:

  • Understand the nature and importance of attachment relationships.
  • Describe attachment patterns through life.
  • Understand the relationship between the brain and attachment behaviour.
  • Make sense of attachment behaviours in everyday life.
  • Understand how to apply this knowledge to their own work settings.
  • Be aware of the importance of listening to, responding to and observing children and young people.
  • Know what services are available to help in Salford and when and how to access them.
  • Be able to help children, young people and parents feel secure and able to engage with workers.

Participants are often asked to reflect on the emotional impact of the work they do and how it can be managed. Some handouts are provided on the day and others sent by email after the course.

Duration and time
Two days, 9.15am to 4.30pm

It is important to attend for the full course or learning outcomes may not be met. Please note that late arrival may result in you not being admitted to the course. Leaving early may result in not being given a certificate of attendance.

The Safeguarding Board is now charging agencies for staff who fail to attend if we are not informed at least five working days before the course.

This includes participants who arrive late and are not admitted by the trainers or participants who on the day inform the trainers they need to leave early. The charge for this course would be £80 which would be requested at the end of the financial year.

Who should attend?
It is felt that this course would be beneficial for most of the partners within the SSCB to help inform their assessments and subsequent intervention. It is aimed at front line workers who have regular contact with children and young people.
