Meeting

Attachment Theory Practice Group

presented by Anabel Wyndham

A working knowledge of attachment, like brain structure and function, is central to the understanding of Social Workers working with children, adolescents and adults. Its operation is not always obvious and prominent, but it gives us insights into personal functioning and relationships when we use it as a viewing prism, particularly when people are in trouble or stressed.
