myATTACHMENT | Teacher as an Attachment Figure

Short description

The course is suitable for people working in education who want to apply the principles of attachment theory in practice. We combine the behavioural system of a personality with innovative educational methods tied to the attachment style of children, learners and educators.

Main objectives

This course aims to improve the practical skills in an innovative teaching created on the principles of attachment theory. This theory describes a behavioural system of a personality and it can be used for improving the attachment between children and teachers. You will learn how to create a school environment based on empathy, acceptance and attachment styles of your own and also your pupils.

Thanks to this course you will:

  • gain knowledge and practical information about the attachment theory, definitions, principles and the history of research, diagnostics, and application practice
  • understand the reasons and examples used in practice associated with the use of the behavioural system of children and learners
  • create and increase empathy, tools of compassion in teaching, which are tied to individual styles of attachment and can hinder the development of a relationship with a child 
  • understand attachment styles and obstacles in their building and development or treatment of relational traumas.

Who is to attend?

This course addresses teachers, school psychologists, career and/or educational counsellors, headmasters, school management and administrative staff working in education and teaching organisations, schools or NGOs.

The course is held in English. For groups with at least 8 participants, we can organise an ad-hoc session in a different language.

Costs and Erasmus+ Funding

The most common option that we offer to participants of our courses is Erasmus+ Full Package - costs of 1020 EUR (includes course fee, training material - soft copy, certification, accommodation (bed & breakfast), transport from and to the airport), 2 coffee breaks per day, walking tour in the venue's city and a sum-up dissemination video.

The Erasmus+ Full Package offers are popular with many organisations and institutions because they minimize the administration and management time spent by the Erasmus+/Institutional coordinators and the participants can enjoy our courses without the hassle of organising their trip. Equally important, Erasmus+ Full Packages offer substantial savings that can reach up to 30 % compared to normal rates for selected accommodations & transport. Accommodation is always at 3 or 4 star hotels with full facilities.

We recommend you to request 7 days of individual support for your subsistence costs (5 days for the course plus 2 additional days for travelling). If you need to contact us and help with the creation of grant applications or budgets in the process of project preparation, do not hesitate to contact us.

Certification and Validation

At the end of the course, each participant will be awarded a certificate of attendance, with (if requested) the Europass Mobility Certificate. The certificates comply with Erasmus Quality Standards (include a short description of the course and learning outcomes, dates, venues, the name of the course provider and the course instructor/s).

We support our participants in fulfilling obligations related to meeting the requirements of the Erasmus Plus program ( preparation of a learning agreement, quality commitment and Europass Mobility Certificate).

Part of our services is to provide additional certification and reporting documentation, e.g. taking photos from the courses and preparing a sum-up video, which can be used for visibility and dissemination purposes.
