Me, You, Us – Understanding emotional dynamics in the Early Years setting
Central to the mental wellbeing of the young child in the early years setting is safety in the relationships the child forms with early years practitioners.
I am presenting the keynote address that explores:
- the role of the key person as a secondary attachment figure,
- the impact of a child’s insecure attachment profile on their ability to relate to adults
- and the subsequent impact on the Early Years practitioner’s mental and physical wellbeing.
The workshop that follows considers an assessment checklist that corresponds to the Early Adopter ELGs.
