Adverse Childhood Experiences, Attachment, and the Early Years’ Learning Environment explores the concept of learning by presenting research and illustrations from practice on three major topics: adverse childhood experiences, attachment, and environment. Each child has a unique reaction to adversity in the early years, and the book discusses the effect upon approach and avoidance motivation for learning, and the rationale of trauma-informed practice. The influence from a secure attachment figure is explored, and links presented between emotions and involvement.
The book highlights the current indoor and outdoor use of natural green spaces as a response to attention-fatigue and promotes comprehension of the issues in a context of attention restoration theory. Intervention for extended families is presented as an approach to support development and attainment in each generation, and to achieve a legacy beyond the professional network.
This book will appeal to academics, researchers and post-graduate students in the fields of early years’ care, and education. It will also appeal to those working within children’s services..
