ASK THE THERAPIST: WHAT IS ATTACHMENT THEORY
with ALLISON PECK - Via Zoom
Designed for expectant and new parents, or anyone interested in understanding the nature of the bond between child and caregiver, this session will consider John Bowlby's Attachment Theory. Considered the most important theory of psychology, this biological motivation to connect is inherent within us all, and carries into our intimate adult attachment relationships.
Key topics will include:
What is Attachment Theory?
How does my child connect to me?
How does this fit in with feeding my child?
How does this relate to my own identity, and development?
What does this mean for my spouse/partner?
Where does work/life balance fit in with attachment?
How does this relate to my toddler?
