Welcome to the Attachment Network of Manitoba.

This site is intended to be a portal into solid information on parent/child attachment, research, resources, trainings and workshops. Some of the material presented fits best for those who work in the field, and some of the material fits best for parents, but all of the material fits for us as human beings. We update our material regularly, so please keep checking back, and take time to leave your email with us to remain on our mailing list. Feedback and questions can be directed to [email protected]

What is Attachment?

Attachment is the capacity to form and maintain healthy emotional relationships. An attachment bond has unique properties. The capacity to create these special relationships begins in early childhood.

Attachment is a “deep and enduring emotional bond that connects one person to another across time and space”.
– John Bowlby

Our ability to create these very special relationships begins in early childhood.
