Healthy attachments are key to healthy relationships. The quality of the dynamics within a child’s early relationships with their parents/caregivers impact the overall mental health, functioning, and quality of future relationships for that child. However, it’s never too late to build and strengthen relationships. And, as a play therapist, you can help facilitate this process. Working with parents/guardians to repair and strengthen their child’s attachment can be some of the most rewarding work a play therapist can do. This presentation will explore how a play therapist can work with parents to form those healthy attachments, no matter how old the child.
At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
List at least 3 links between healthy early attachments to healthy future relationships.
Describe at least 3 signs and symptoms of attachment problems/disorders.
Utilize at least 3 play therapy interventions to help parents/guardians build/strengthen their attachment to their child.
