Event Description

The training will review the various attachment styles and what a baby needs to have a secure base and what is needed to provide that base for the child and how media can interrupt that bond. 

Learning Objectives:

2.      The participant will understand how different behaviors impact that bond with their child.

3.     The participant will be able to discuss the research on how looking at a screen rather than the infant can disrupt the bond they develop with the child.
