To all Clallam-Jefferson-Kitsap bar members:
- Topic: The Significance of Childhood Attachment in a Rural Family Law Practice
- Date & Time: Thursday, April 26, 2012, 9-1
- Location: Port Angeles, Washington (specific place TBD)
Childhood attachment is considered by many to be the most important psychological discovery in the last 50 years. Supported by substantial neuroscience research in how childhood attachment is intimately tied to infant brain development, attachment theory has driven considerable change in how the fields of mental health, social work and conflict management understand the impact of early relationships on childhood development. More recently, attachment theory and its practical implications are being applied in the law. Prevention Works of Clallam County is pleased to announce a training on this essential topic for all family law practitioners and all other legal professionals who work with families.
The training will be led by Andrew Benjamin J.D., Ph.D., and Sarah Baxter Ph.D. Dr. Benjamin is a clinical Professor of Psychology and affiliate Professor of Law at the University of Washington, and Dr. Baxter is a clinical psychologist whose work specializes in children, families and trauma.
Please save the date. We will provide more information on the precise location, cost and agenda as it becomes available.
