dc.description.abstract This final project explores the concept of parent-child attachment in relation to social adjustment. Secure parent-child attachment promotes pro-social interactions, increased self-knowledge and self-esteem, reduced maladaptive behaviours, and overall healthy development, while insecure attachments have been linked to bullying behaviours, such as aggression and hostility. Parents are encouraged to provide sensitive care, be dependable, and increase their child’s emotional awareness, but it is also important for schoolteachers to promote secure attachment in students. The teacher manual includes suggested activities to improve student relations that teachers can incorporate in the classroom. This project provides teachers with strategies to facilitate positive attachments, improve interpersonal relationships, and reduce bullying behaviours in schools. Some guidelines for making therapeutic referrals are also presented. en_US
