This workshop’s content is focused towards developing a foundational understanding of
what children experience when they are facing separation from a parent or caregiver. We
will discuss at length not only the attachment system but also the alarm system (anxiety),
and strategies for both, parents and caregivers to utilize to separate with ease.
• Understand the major tenets of Connection & Separation to enable care providers to respond effectively to the attachment needs of children in our care.
• Explore and discuss how to provide a comforting, nurturing environment for children to be received into.
Suitable for parents, students, adult instructors/administrators, novice, intermediate and experienced early learning child care professionals working with preschool children, including children with extra support needs.
