Beyond the Pages Book Study: Chapter 1 (Langworthy) *Limited*

By Amanda Hodel

Dear Colleagues,

I am excited to kick off the first week of this book study for Bridging the Relationship Gap by Dr. Sara Langworthy.  I had the pleasure of reading this book very soon after its publication and am eager to re-read it now and examine new ways in which it is applicable to my own work and experiences.

To provide some context, I would like to quickly share how I am involved in this field.  I came to my first reading of this book from a very academic background, during the completing of my PhD in Child Development at the University of Minnesota.  I am forever grateful for the training provided by the faculty members of this program,  as it beautifully emphasized the idea that understanding early relationships is critical if we wish to understand pathways in development – why some children thrive and others seem to struggle.

I would like to share some of my views on some of the most salient points of this chapter and close by reflecting on what we have learned and how we can use this information… 

Amanda

One thought on “Beyond the Pages Book Study: Chapter 1 (Langworthy) *Limited*

  1. What is one way you are hoping to incorporate the content from this book study into your own work with children? I would like to make of an effort to be social with the children I work with. This will help them establish a good and positive relationship with me and see me as someone that they can trust. This is so crucial especially in the early years of any child’s life. I want them to be well-rounded and socially adept to conquer the challenges before them.

    What is one way your thinking has changed as a result of learning about attachment relationships? I now look at things differently. I now realize that there is so much more that goes into building a relationship with children. I was surprised to find out that the children around us take their emotional and social cues from the adults and the environment around them. So much more goes into forming that secure attachment with caregivers and loved ones.
