The cool graphic designer, engaging with children and young people in care

  1. 1. C Being bigger Kind
  2. 2. • Attachment relationships to caregivers guarantee new-borns survival and thrive, protection from perils, and comfort in time of needs. • Attachment relationships set the ground for our mental representations of the world and how to behave in the relationships, whether we can trust and rely on other people. • Attachment relationships influence is not limited to early infancy and childhood as the function of the attachment system covers the whole life span.
  3. 3. • We can be attached to more than one person…this guarantee our physical and emotional survival! • Whereas in the past it was believed we could have been attached to a primary caregiver only (mainly the mother), over the years research evidence showed that we can be attached to “multiple caregivers” (e.g. father, kin, carers, teachers, friends, staff in day clubs) • This shift in the understanding of attachment in research, as well as in policy and clinical practice, is noteworthy to promote the development and well-being of children and young people who were removed from their birth families for protection orders and then placed in “Alternative Care” (AC) (e.g. Children’s Homes, foster or kinship care).
  4. 4. • If it is true that attachment relationships established in early infancy may have a long- lasting influence on the individual, it is also true that under specific life circumstances these can be revised. • The revision of our mental schema of the attachment relationships happens through other significant relationships and people we meet in life. • New attachment relationships that young people living in alternative care or adopted form with their temporary and/or new caregivers may have the power to revise their prior early attachment relationships with other caregivers (biological parents or those in other previous placements). They may set the ground for a good (and never too late!) start.
