Published on 20 May 2020

The concept of attachment provides a lens for understanding and responding to the needs of children and their caregivers in the context of their life and relationships. This learning resource written by Sally Wassell explores the evolving meaning and application of this concept.

There is a summary of current policy implications, and this goes alongside practice points and video perspectives from Kenny Toshack (Adoption and Fostering Team, local authority) and Corry McDonald (Parenting and assessment service, North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership).
