Ojibway Elders Perceptions of Attachment (Workshop 48)
Presenters first provide a brief overview of attachment theory and its place in child welfare practice and then discuss research with a remote Native American "fly-in" community. This latter research challenges the presumption that attachment theory is universal and the most vital consideration in long-term placement decisions. The session also addresses the role of attachment versus identity formation on children placed in non-Native American homes and suggests future research on attachment that may aid in the development of culturally congruent models of Native American child welfare.
