Attachment (2009)

This booklet, prepared by the Early Childhood Learning Knowledge Centre (ECLKC) of the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL), is aimed at parents, service providers, policy makers, and the general public.

The authors explain that during infancy, it is critically important for children to bond with and come to treat their caregivers as safe havens, a core process known as “attachment.”

Children who don’t attach securely to their caregivers may face significant challenges in their development. Therefore, it is important that caregivers receive the information, guidance, and support they need to foster secure attachments with their children.

The booklet includes information on the roots and types of attachment problems, as well as a discussion of the best intervention methods for dealing with problems before they become ingrained.
