Why Attachment Matters in Our Community

About Why Attachment Matters in Our Community

Many of you will already have heard about the importance of an early, secure attachment relationship. The security that this loving bond provides allows a child to develop both trust for others and self-reliance so that, as they grow, they can feel safe to explore their world, form positive relationships and fulfil their potential because they know that they have support to overcome any challenges they may face.

But not everyone has an early, secure attachment relationship. For one, or a variety of factors (e.g. parenting style, neglect, poverty, domestic violence, abuse, mental ill-heath) some children do not have a primary carer whom they can depend on to consistently meet their needs. Therefore, they do not learn to value themselves or to trust others nor to understand and manage their emotions.

For these children, the world can feel a scary place and the survival behaviours they learn to rely on to manage the stress this causes them and keep themselves safe are sometimes seen negatively rather than being recognised as the coping strategies they are. Their survival behaviours can make it difficult for them to learn and to build positive relationships. Unless they have support and guidance, they will struggle at school and, ultimately, across their life span.

However, with support and guidance, there is hope. They can learn new attachment patterns. Building quality relationships with later attachment figures (including with people in their community who have an understanding of the impact of insecure attachment and a willingness to see the child not just 'problem' behaviours), can give them a sense of security as part of their community and allow them to develop positive ways of relating and behaving.

During this session there will be a formal presentation on attachment theory and the impact of insecure attachment and early trauma. We shall then open the discussion to hear, share and explore practical ways to build positive relationships across our communities.

Our speakers are Fiona Lettice and Gillian Neish.
