Children’s attachment needs in the context of out-of-home care

14 Nov 2016
Description

Practitioners supporting children in out-of-home care are often faced with making difficult decisions about children’s needs. These decisions include where the child will live and how often a child has contact with their family of origin. Children’s attachment needs are one of the factors that are considered when making these decisions. This resource is intended to provide an overview of what we know, and what needs to be better understood, about children’s attachment needs in the context of out-of-home care. It focuses specifically on disorganised attachment, which is thought to be common in high risk populations, and looks at the practice implications of this.
