Attachment matters…


All Headlands staff attended a very productive inset training day on Monday 4tAtt 1h January, when Dr Gemma Burns delivered a seminar on Attachment theory. Headlands is beginning an exciting journey to become an attachment accredited independent school, and the seminar was the first introduction to attachment theory and its potential effect on the behavior and feelings of young people in our care.  The definition of Attachment is “an emotional bond between an infant or toddler and primary caregiver, a strong bond being vital for the child’s normal behavioral and social development.”

Over the coming months, further training and work will be undertaken in support of our submission for accreditation with the Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Institute (DDPI).
