Developing a Relational Based Approach for children with Attachment difficulties

20.11.19

The relational approach is a unique way to look at behaviour and understand what promotes satisfying and sustainable relationships even under adverse conditions. Whilst behaviour management seeks to change the behaviour of another, the relational approach seeks to enable others to change their own behaviour.

Through learning how to use the relational approach, the practitioner can identify ways to create a context within which the other person without coercion, and of their own free will, decides willingly to do the very thing that the practitioner wishes them to do, whilst also building stronger relationships through trust and understanding.
