Folder of the DVD "Embracing Closeness"
The documentary Embracing Closeness takes a closer look at how to cultivate the parent-child relationship as early as possible and at the importance of a “secure attachment” for child development.
The film accompanies two couples and a single mother, all of whom made a conscious decision at the outset to cultivate a warm and loving relationship with their children. To help them do this, they turned to institutions they felt would give them the support they were looking for.
Two sets of parents took part in the training program SAFE® - Safe Attachment Formation for Educators, developed by Dr. Karl Heinz Brisch, a leading researcher into attachment and his colleagues, to help them cultivate a “secure attachment” from pregnancy.
