Bonding & Attachment in Newborn Adoption on 2/9/21 (Virtual)
February 9, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Attachment and bonding are critical to the development of secure human beings. A strong and healthy attachment formed early in life can set the stage for all future relationships. Children adopted domestically typically arrive in their adoptive families as infants, sometimes only days old, yet a focus on building strong attachments is very important. In this training we will explore the meaning and importance of bonding and attachment as well as provide simple techniques that will support your bonding and attaching to your child and their bonding and attaching to you. Parents will also learn language to use with friends and family to assist in explaining your attachment-focused parenting. Facilitator: Stefani Moon
