Perspectives on and Strategies for Building and Maintaining Attachment During a Parent’s Incarceration
This year’s New York Zero-to-Three Network Annual Meeting will focus on the experiences and needs of young children who experience parental incarceration. Diverse perspectives will shed light on the urgency of building or maintaining attachment between young children and a parent who cannot be physically present on a frequent basis, as well as strategies for doing so. Existing programs and efforts underway will be highlighted. Policy recommendations that would safeguard children’s attachments and support the parent-child relationships from arrest through reentry will be discussed. The voices of those with direct experience and expertise will provide insight and deepen our collective understanding of how we can all better support young children facing this adverse childhood experience (ACE).
