LEICESTER - Sat 1 July 2017
Continuing Professional Development workshop
(Accredited for 6 CPD points)
Venue: Premier Inn, Fosse Park, Braunstone Lane East, Leicester,
Day 1 PCAP - LEICESTER
- This introductory day is for those practitioners who wish to explore extending their work and knowledge to play-based attachment interventions with parents/carers and their children aged 3-12. It represents an opportunity to bring change right into the family system.
This training showcases a very gentle and safe method based on child-oriented play which is used specifically to improve the quality of the parent/carer-child attachment relationship. This is set within the very new and groundbreaking research into what we now know about how parents change and how secure attachment is operationalised in the earliest relationship.
Welcome and overview of the day
Turning attachment theory into practice: how does this gentle approach work? Why is it so helpful?

Full demonstration and experience of a 20 minute PCAP "you and me" session between parent/carer and practitioner
Upon completion a certificate of attendance is awarded (accredited for 6 hours CPD). Those wishing to attain license to practice will need to attend a second day which focuses on the skills and resources needed to set up PCAP for small groups of parents and one-to-one work. This course raises much-needed funds for our Parent-Baby social projects around the globe.
