Have you ever wondered why a specific behavior by your child drives you crazy? In this curriculum, parents will learn general information about the four basic attachment styles, how those styles form, and how a parent’s attachment style impacts how they parent. Parents will also gain an understanding of their specific attachment style. They will be able to identify the strengths and challenges of that attachment style to develop a healthier, more secure attachment with a child who has experienced trauma. This curriculum also offers practical scenarios that parents commonly encounter and learn how to respond to triggers or frustrations they may experience in parenting, with the goal of moving forward in healthier patterns.
Parents will leave the support group with a better understanding of the following topics.
- The four attachment styles are and how attachment in our family of origin impacts how we parent.
- The attachment styles with which you most identify and how to address the struggles and challenges of that attachment style for parenting your child.
- Practical advice to improve how you interact with your child using common scenarios many families face when raising children who have experienced trauma.
