Our introductory course is aimed at anyone who works with children, from social care workers to teachers, and wants to understand attachment theory.
Attachment Theory is a well-established theory which illustrates the key role attachment plays in the development of a child through to adulthood, how they form relationships with others and how they perceive themselves.
Using the context of attachment theory, our course is designed to provide you with insights into children’s behaviour and development, and what you can do to help a child who may be struggling.
Overall, it explores the history of attachment, the different attachment styles, the impact on brain development, the ways it can affect children and how it can impact their development through to adulthood, and helpful suggestions on what you can do if suspect a child is struggling with attachment difficulties.
We strive to ensure our courses are meaningful, beneficial and engaging. This course includes a wide range of media types, such as videos, resources and challenges, to help bring the learning to life.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.

5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
