Practical Advice for Raising Children with Attachment Issues with trainer Rosemary Jackson. 

Building secure and trusting relationships with your child is the goal of every parent. When it comes to raising children from the child welfare system, this can be a challenge that you may not feel fully prepared to handle. Join Rosemary to look at how children form attachments, how to intervene with children who have had a rough start on their journey to form attachments, and to learn practical techniques to forge a bond with your child. Find out about what various attachment styles look like and how they influence your relationship with your child. Learn practical ways to work with the type of attachment issues that your child presents. Plan to attend this interactive workshop to enhance and support your family relationships.
