Relationship Matters: Harnessing the Power of Attachment
When we think of parenting, we typically focus on what skills need to be learned to effectively raise our young. Science has affirmed however, that the secret to this ancient dance lies in the relationship between the child and the care-giver. Although the implications of this pivotal principle are profound, we have unfortunately lost the cultural traditions that support this basic truth. Dr. Neufeld will elaborate on how we can foster right relationship between parents and their children, thus rendering parents more intuitive and effective in their caring as well as children more receptive to their care.
Dr. Neufeld will be delivering this full-day session on Wednesday, October 18th.
The keynote is part of the full conference program. A limited number of seats are also available for 1-day only registration to attend the keynote.
