International Workshop on
Early Attachment and Culture: Lessons From Around the World

A Three-Part Global Learning Adventure!

CoAIMH and the Two Lilies Fund are thrilled to welcome Dr. Nana Esi Gaisie, MBChB (ZERO TO THREE Fellow and pediatrician from Ghana) & Dr. Abraham Sagi-Schwartz (child development expert from Israel) to Colorado via Zoom this spring!

Ecologically-specific contexts are often used to challenge universal conclusions about early childhood / relational development. Drawing on previous as well as new findings, this lecture will focus on the potential power and merit of socio-cultural contexts for highlighting important universal aspects of development, specifically through the lens of attachment theory. 

Relying on cross-cultural research from many countries around the world (e.g. those throughout North and South America, Eurpe, Asia, and Africa), Drs. Nana and Avi will advocate for the universality of attachment theory, while also sharing implications for issues associated with having a significant impact on early attachment (e.g. divorce, foster care, adoption, etc.).
