WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
ATTACH™ is different from other parenting programs in that it teaches parents a skill—reflective function.
Parents who have this skill promote secure attachment with their infants.
ATTACH™ facilitators are trained to help parents to reflect on their own and others’ (especially their children’s) thoughts, feelings and mental states.
Data have shown to improve parenting quality and child development without having to teach parents anything about parenting or child development or child milestones.
