Secure attachment from the beginning...

The development of a secure attachment between parents and child is the ideal foundation for the healthy physical, psychological, and social development of the child. It is therefore crucial that we make every effort to support parents as well as children in their earliest developmental phases to ensure that this important developmental step is successfully accomplished. — Karl Heinz Brisch

SAFE® -  Safe Attachment Formation for Educators

A training program to promote secure attachment between parents and child.

Children who develop a secure emotional attachment show, among other things, more pro-social and less aggressive behavior, have a greater capacity for empathy, are more creative and persistent in pursuing their ends, and exhibit better cognitive capacities and greater creativity in dealing with difficult situations than do children with an insecure attachment. This primary prevention program seeks to prevent attachment disorders and the cross-generation transmission of traumatic experiences. » more
