How well do we enter the emotional experience of another, especially our children?
Attunement is an intentional choice to remain present, open, and willing to contain the hard feelings of a child.
It is through attunement that a child builds trust and autonomy. For children who have experienced developmental trauma building trust is essential and a process requiring persistence, grit, and determination.
In everything we do and say, our messages need to communicate...
We can also communicate through Non-Verbal attunement.
- physical presence and proximity
- willingness to wait until a child is ready
- active listening
- use sign language, smiles, nods, and winks,
- kind eyes and facial expressions
