Based on theoretical models of attachment and resilience, it aims to enhance secure parent-child attachment and build child resilience. It does this by promoting parents’ understanding of and ability to respond appropriately and sensitively to their child’s daily lived experience and needs. Designed to be used flexibly by a variety of professionals with parents/carers of children from 0-8 years old identified as requiring additional support with the child-parent relationship, the programme employs self-assessment, coaching and mentoring approaches. The presenters will provide an overview of the programme, discuss contexts for implementation and use, and give participants an opportunity to look at the materials and resources.
