Neglect has profound implications for a child's development, as it deprives them of the necessary affection, attention, and encouragement. Adler's insights shed light on the profound impact of neglect on a child's development.

In this course, we will delve deep into the root causes and contemporary manifestations of neglect. Additionally, we will explore the intriguing question of whether excessive indulgence can serve as compensation for childhood neglect.

Upon completion of this course, participants will have achieved the following:

  1. Develop a profound understanding of the causes and manifestations of neglect and recognize why neglect is a form of emotional violence.
  2. Understand the potential consequences of neglect, including insecure attachments, a lack of social feeling, reduced resilience, and the development of neurotic tendencies.
  3. Explore the concept that spoiling can sometimes be an attempt to respond to childhood neglect.
  4. Learn practical steps to reduce neglect and promote healing.

This course is approved for 14 CPD points with the IACP.

We encourage you to book your place early.
