This renowned professional accredited CPD training uses a simple attachment approach and has been developed around the very latest research. The programme is designed to intervene early when attachment and internal working models are being formed or are most likely to change.
Practitioners will learn how to use this flexible programme for group and individual work and how to use a suite of validated measures to evaluate impact.
The training is ideal for all practitioners working with families who may wish to extend their work to babies and their carers e.g. Play and other Creative Arts Therapists, social workers, teaching staff, midwives, nurses, charity workers, family outreach workers, nursery staff, health educators, children's centre staff -and others.
This is a self-led training which practitioners can complete at their own pace; we recommend setting aside around 12 hours to complete the course.
This highly regarded training will equip you with a practitioner certificate, 12 accredited CPD points, free licensing agreement, a comprehensive secure online folder of resources, a quality assurance license, membership to a closed practitioner community and the opportunity to join our Attachment Play Practitioner Directory.
