2 Dancing the Same Steps Child signals attachment needs clearly Sensitive parenting: parent meets the attachment needs of the child Secure Attachment
3 Secure Attachment Secure Base Need for comfort and protection Exploration The world
4 Dancing Different Steps Foster/Adopted Child signals attachment needs in a distorted way Carer tries to meet the needs sensitively Child resists sensitive parenting Child re-enacts early experience & resists change
5 Developing a Complex Dance Responding to expressed needs. Gentle Challenge. Responding to hidden needs. Lead child into a new dance within which they can express their needs openly and respond to sensitive parenting.
6 Ambivalent Attachment Pattern Secure Base Need for comfort and protection You will attend to me, I fear abandonment The world
7 Parenting the Child With an Ambivalent Attachment Pattern Expressed need : Reassurance of availability when child needs it. Predictability and consistency. Structure and routine. Co-regulate emotion that is expressed. Hidden need: Support to be apart from you need help to be apart and to feel secure that you will be there when needed.
8 Avoidant Attachment Pattern Secure Base I will do it by myself, I fear closeness Exploration The world
9 Parenting a Child With an Avoidant Attachment Pattern Expressed need: I don t need you. Hidden need: Help to feel comfort and safety with you. Support to accept nurturing. Co-regulate emotion that is hidden.
10 Disorganized/Controlling Pattern Secure Base Frightening I am powerful, I am scared, I fear The world
11 Parenting the Traumatized Child. Expressed need: I need to be in control. Hidden need: Need help to feel safe. Need low stress environment.
12 Dancing a Dysfunctional Dance Fostering a child with attachment difficulties can lead to complex feelings within the carer: 1. Projection: the child projects feelings that the carer picks up and experiences as his/her own. 2. Triggers for unresolved issues: the child evokes feelings in the carer that trigger a reaction to a past relationship. The carer responds automatically and stops being able to respond flexibly.
13 Dancing a Dysfunctional Dance The carer is left feeling angry, sad or discouraged. These feelings are communicated to the child. The dance becomes even less connected.
14 Case Study Jane was removed from her mother when she was 30 months old because of her mother s mental health problems. She is placed into a short term foster placement. Her behaviour becomes increasingly difficult and she moves into a new short term placement. Jane initially settles in very easily and appears to get on well with all family members. At review it is decided to pursue adoption for Jane, but the foster carers are willing to offer long term foster care.
15 Case Study Jane s foster carers offer her a close and loving relationship. The foster mother wants to give Jane the experience of a loving mother that she didn t have herself, because her mother left them when she was 3 years old. Jane resists this. She becomes very rejecting and self reliant. This pushes her carers into a distant and frustrated relationship to her.
16 Case Study Jane becomes very aggressive towards the foster carers own children. Grandparents can no longer baby sit because of Jane s behaviour. No adoptive family has yet been found. The carers wait to hear whether she will be staying with them or moving. They are uncertain about what is best for them.
17 Parenting Task Provide a home where emotional, behavioural and developmental needs are met. Stability and security. Predictable, contingent & responsive nurturing and care. Age appropriate experiences. Appropriate boundaries. Meet need for dependence and independence at different developmental stages.
18 The Challenge of This Parenting Task Prior experience which influences how child responds. Needs can be presented in a distorted or hidden way. Need to be available & responsive and gently challenging. Challenge beliefs This family will be lost as well. Parents can t keep you safe/parents are dangerous. I am so bad nothing you can do or say will change this. Child s disturbance can trigger own past, unresolved parenting history.
19 The Challenge of This Parenting Task Children need nurturance but present difficult/alienating behaviours. Children need support for independence but present a need for continuing attention and involvement of the carer. Children need to feel safe but behave in ways that increase their danger. Children need to trust and rely on parents but maintain a rigidly controlling and rejecting relationship.
20 The Challenge of This Parenting Task Success can lead to increased anxiety. Triggers defensive behaviour in child. Fear of close relationship and of its future loss leads to: rejecting, controlling or challenging behaviour. overwhelming need of carers time and attention. Carer is left feeling inadequate.
21 Case Study Carers are helped to understand Jane s behaviour in relation to her past experience. Foster mother relates her own feelings and frustrations to her own early experience. They are taught to provide empathy for Jane s fear of close relationships and gently challenge her need for control and self-reliance. They are taught to meet the need for nurture that she does not express.
22 Case Study Gradually Jane learns to trust in their availability and develop some dependence upon them. These more secure relationships help Jane, but she remains a very controlling little girl. A decision is made that Jane will remain with them in a long term foster placement. They are exploring special guardianship or adoption to help Jane to feel more secure.

32 In a word relevant! Gives confidence in what we are doing and strength to carry on. Brilliant discussion.

This session tonight has helped me to restore some faith in myself and what I am doing.
