COVID and Attachment: What Does Lockdown Mean for Little Ones, How Do We Help?

We’ll explore the potential impact of lockdown on the ability of small children to build and maintain relationships and what this might mean when restrictions are lifted.  We’ll consider the potential risks of the current situation and how to mitigate these and we’ll think too about how we can lean into some of the benefits that the pandemic can bring for bond building. 

Unpick the topic with Pooky who’ll lead you through a guided discussion exploring some key suggestions for making this work in your context.

This session is suitable for anyone working with or caring for children.  You’ll get regular opportunities to discuss the ideas in small groups and these work wonderfully when we have a real mix of people because there’s so much we can learn from one another.

What Will I Learn?

  • What’s the potential impact of COVID on social development?
  • Lockdown: how to make the benefits outweigh the risks
  • The role of the adults around the child now, soon and longer term
  • Simple ideas for building social strength now and in the future
