Attachment in children and young people [UPDATED]: Frontline Briefing (2016)

Frontline resources
Published: Apr 2016
Author: David Shemmings

Much evidence suggests that attachment relationships with a parent or carer are the foundation for a child’s experience of the world. This second edition briefing highlights emerging evidence on understanding and building attachment relationships pre-birth. It provides a fundamental grounding in attachment theory and different attachment behaviours, with a focus on identifying signs of parent-child interactions that may need further assessment. It also aims to build understanding of attachment and the appropriate application of the theory in direct work with children, young people and families.

Aimed at: Frontline practitioners and team managers in children’s social care, family support and wider Children’s Services (including early help, education and health).
