ARC Attachment research community
Learning starts with attachment. Attachment theory explains how children build an internal working model of themselves and the world through relationships. Trauma, abuse, neglect, separation and bereavement have adverse effects, which means the child and adult's sense of safety and relationships need to be rebuilt in order for them to learn.
Stay true project
The Stay true project is a new initiative, using a child centered approach to support young people who are especially at risk of exploitation to make positive lasting life changes.
