Attachment Vitamins is a parenting education group that provides caregivers with knowledge about early emotional development and the effects of stress so that parents can better understand and respond to their child’s needs and challenging behaviors. Activities highlight experiences that increase parental attachment with the child, and enable parents to consider their own experiences and parenting goals. To promote early language development, attendees receive a book at each session to take home and read with their child. The opportunity for parents to meet and learn from each other provides social support and greater awareness of community resources.

The basics:

  • Parents or primary caregivers of children ages 0-5 years are eligible (parents with children 0-2 years will have priority). Parents should be able to make a commitment to participating in the 10 weekly sessions.
  • Attachment Vitamins will be held at the Picard Center; dates will be announced soon.
  • Childcare and assistance with transportation available on a limited basis.
  • This is no cost to attend, but spaces are limited.

Supported by funding from Project LAUNCH, groups are co-led by Paula Zeanah, PhD, MSN and Yasmin Welch, LCSW; both have extensive experience working with families of young children. For more information, contact Paula Zeanah by e-mail ( or phone (337-482-1552).
