Analysis & Assessment in Adult Social Care Face to Face (Classroom)

Anxiety is a natural feeling we all experience from time to time which can be useful when we face new or stressful situations. It can be our body’s way of preparing us to face a challenge by releasing a hormone called adrenaline which causes an alert and ready to react response sometimes known as ‘fight or flight’. All children and young people can get anxious and this is a normal as they grow up to develop their survival skills. However sometimes Anxiety can occur too often and at the wrong time and this may affect a child’s everyday life, development and relationships. Recent research suggests that as many as 1 in 6 young people will experience an anxiety condition at some point in their lives, this means that up to 5 people in a class may be living with higher levels of anxiety, whether that be OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), social anxiety and shyness, exam stress, worry or panic attacks.

  • Understand that anxiety can be adaptive and part of the normal development of children and young people.

ASYE for ASC (Managers/Assessors) - What Makes a Good PortfolioFace to Face (Classroom)

Why Attachment Matters: “Children are not slates from which the past can be rubbed…. but human beings who carry their previous experiences with them and whose behaviour in the present is profoundly affected by what has gone on before” (Bowlby, 1951).  Attachment is an emotional bond to another person; the central theme of attachment theory is that parents/carers who are available and responsive to an infant's needs allow the child to develop a sense of security. The infant knows that the parent/carer is consistent, which creates a secure base for the child to then explore the world.

Researchers have found that attachment patterns established early in life can lead to a number of outcomes. For example, children who are securely attached as infants tend to develop stronger self-esteem and better self-reliance as they grow older. These children also tend to be more independent, perform better in school, have successful social relationships, and experience less depression and anxiety.

What happens to children who develop an insecure attachment pattern? Research suggests that these patterns established early in life can have a negative impact on emotional wellbeing and relationships in childhood, and throughout adult life.  Insecure attachment behaviour has been identified with particular responses to the teacher and the learning task in the classroom (Geddes 2006). However, the school ethos, approaches and interventions can be adapted to proactively address attachment needs and this course explores those possibilities.

The course is suitable for school staff for all Key Stages

Course Learning Objectives:

  • To understand what attachment is and why it is so important
  • To know how to support when attachment style impacts on learning
