Attachment Theories: Weathering Our Childhood

Course Description

Attachment Theories offer an ethological approach to social and personality development. These theories propose that evolutionary forces have endowed infants with genes that predispose them to form emotional bonds with their caregivers. In this course, emphasis will be placed on the significance of early childhood relationships. Further focus will be given to clinical treatment, case management, child welfare and protective services to individuals and families within the continuum of the social work field.
