This video explores the critical role of attachment in a child’s development. Most of us think of attachment as a loving bond between parent and child. But what happens if a child doesn’t receive nurturing, consistent care from a loving parent early in life? Can a parent love a child or a child love a parent, but still not feel securely connected? And what are the consequences of insecure attachments? In this video, adoptive parents share their struggles and successes in pursuit of these answers and experts will share fascinating and encouraging research that reveals how secure attachments can help counter the effects of early trauma.
