A unique opportunity to listen to Dr Heather Geddes who has spent her working life enabling children and young people settle to learn, especially those whose attachment difficulties and experience of extremely difficult early lives first moved her to focus on their predicament and challenges.
Dr Geddes is the author of the classic book, Attachment in the Classroom, first published in 2006, widely respected as the book that first made explicit the critical connections between a child's earliest experiences of attachment, and how they are - or are not - able to relate to teacher and task in school, through her simple but iconic Learning Triangle. At a time when some in education were saying, 'This attachment stuff is great - but what do we DO about it?' - she indicated the path to follow - how to use task to create, develop and balance the need for relationship, fundamental to our capacity to be open to and fully engage in learning.
With special guests Dr Elaine Arnold and Lyndsey Daniels from Caspari Foundation.
