I-LABS in the Classroom: Module 08: Attachment in Practice
All children deserve the best start in life and new scientific discoveries deepen our understanding of how to create the best environments for children. The team at I-LABS creates new and effective ways to bridge the gap between the science and the practice of learning by disseminating the latest science of child development. Our team shares the latest scientific discoveries in relevant and actionable ways with those who can best put it into practice: early learning professionals, parents, and policymakers. Partners use cutting-edge research to create evidence-based policies, practices, and programs that grow the next generation of lifelong learners. This hour long class covers the following points: Attachment is a dyadic relationship. This means that an attachment relationship depends on both the adult and the child. Attachment security is on a continuum. Children’s attachment behavior can be more or less secure. Their behavior depends on the caregiving they receive. A child is more likely to form a secure attachment when her caregiver provides consistent and sensitive care.
