The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the objectives within the Servant Heart Research Collaboration’s “Attachment Theory Workshop and Self-Paced Refresher Training.” These training modules are focused on research in the Attachment Theory, trauma-informed care, childhood resiliency, emotional regulation, caregiver satisfaction, and additional topics, and was created for the purpose of assisting parents and other caregivers of children associated with the Child Rescue Center in Bo, Sierra Leone.

This thesis includes a literature review of research and history associated with the Attachment Theory, Sierra Leone, content analysis, and the Servant Heart Research Collaboration. From here, this thesis will present an organized study of the learning objectives created for the “Attachment Theory Workshop and Self-Paced Refresher Training” and will utilize Bloom’s Taxonomy to analyze the effectiveness of the objectives as they currently stand. The thesis also presents a second set of proposed learning objectives to replace the existing objectives, and these proposed objectives aid in the content analysis. Finally, this thesis will present suggested changes to the “Attachment Theory Workshop and Self-Paced Refresher Training” objectives.
