The LEAD approach for Parents & Professionals

Read the Need and Take the LEAD

The LEAD Approach provides a fresh perspective in the field of young peoples’ emotional health and social learning. It puts adults in the LEAD in natural and intuitive ways, within the context of the adult-child relationship. 

Living Emotional Attachment Development brings together the science of emotion, child development, attachment and trauma, filling a missing piece in the understanding of young peoples’ communication and behaviour.

By making sense of the young person’s presentation in terms of their deepest need for connection, we find some remarkable insights. The LEAD approach translates these insights into practical solutions for families, schools and professionals.

The LEAD approach is offered in

*consultancy support for families in 1:1 sessions

* group sessions for parents and professionals  

* webinars 

*master class trainings in 2021

Webinar in LEAD for therapists
