Course Overview

In this course, you will receive an overview of past and current research and theories on the process of attachment, an understanding of the impact of early exposure to trauma on brain development and the attachment process, a symptoms checklist of attachment problems, and a description of some long-term consequences for a child with attachment disorder. You will learn that an attachment disorder is a condition that occurs in many children who experience abuse, neglect, and chaos at the hands of their caregivers during infancy and early childhood. Learners will be able to review some of the pioneering literature on this topic and explore the issue from the perspective of case vignettes.
