ATTUNEMENT is being “tuned in” to another person or a group.
ATTUNEMENT is being present, aware and appropriately responsive with others - and with ourselves. Attunement within the parent-child DYAD is created by the CYCLE of a parent SENSING a child’s feelings and needs – and RESPONDING to those needs – matching their rhythm, affect and experience.
ATTUNEMENT establishes a sense of security within the child and allows the child to self-regulate emotions and
ATTUNEMENT between a pair (a DYAD) is also called CO-REGULATION.
