Information for Professionals

Professionals incorporating Attachment Parenting in their work engage in one of the most effective and empowering prevention strategies possible: Nurturing families and communities by building strong connections between parents and their children.

Concern about an emerging generation of children who are increasingly aggressive, depressed, manipulative, and nonresilient increases the urgency of our efforts and our collaboration. Already these children are part of a growing population of emotionally and behaviorally troubled youth. Studies have shown that the major contributing factor to problem behaviors is a lack of secure and healthy attachment to a parent or other adult primary caregiver.
