Hey Everyone!

Hey Everyone! Are we all enjoying our "class free period"?? I'm not sure about everyone else but I know I'm flat out! I have made some time though to read over some of the essay posted. Got to say that I think everyone has done a great job, I found all the topics so interesting and I learnt so much from reading them. I'm excited about my blog 2 topic Attachment Theory. Havent started research yet but I had a read in our text book and it looks very intriguing. I'm planning on exlporing how parenting might effect a child's attachment style, and whether this effects the child in adulthood...
Anyway, hope everyone is getting some work done over the break, Clare.

Hi Clare,

If you're looking at child/youth mental health I may be able to assist. There are a number of groups that are considered 'highest risk' (ie. children from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, children of parents with a mental health illness and those who have experienced trauma, loss and grief). It goes a bit beyond the attachment theory that you're exploring though...

Cheers
Karen

Thanks for that Karen, I'll get back to you if I go down that path. Very interesting topic though. All the best with your studying!
