Parents’ / Guardians’ Evaluation of Attachment Focused Parenting Training

The aim of the Attachment Focused Parent Training (AFPT) was to help you to overcome some of the emotional difficulties and complex parenting issues that you were facing by helping you to develop your understanding and ability to apply family-centred strategies to create an attachment-focused, nurturing and secure relationship with your child / children.

Time to Listen would greatly appreciate your feedback in relation to your participation in this training programme. Your feedback and evaluation will help us to continually strive to improve our counselling and therapeutic services and to underpin future service planning and funding applications. Your feedback will be completely anonymised for the purpose of project and service evaluation reports.

With sincere thanks in anticipation of your feedback

Kind regards
