HfCF Intervention Resources - Promoting attachment, attuned responsiveness and positive emotional relationships
Intervention guide editors: Clare Gates and Jenny Peters
This intervention guide enables practitioners to support parents reinforce their children’s desired behaviour and shape challenging behaviour using a range of strategies, by helping parents to:
- younger children, so that parents understand what attachment is, can balance the child’s need for both security and exploration, and address disorganised attachment responses
- older children using one-on-one time
- adolescents, so that parents understand the way attachments develop during adolescence, how apparently challenging behaviour can represent attachment needs, and how to provide a positive emotional charge for young people.
