"Every Looked After Child has had a unique experience with attachment relationships. Understanding the importance of attachment is key to enabling practitioners and professionals work effectively with looked after children and young people. They need appropriate and targeted support to develop emotional resilience and positive relationships in light of the difficulties they have faced. Understanding that positive attachment and interpersonal relationships are a cornerstone of our social development is a vital stepping stone in promoting effective work with looked after children.
This app seeks to inform about the roots of attachment theory and how it has an important role to play in modern relationships and professional practice. It offers practical advice and guidance for those who need an increased awareness and understanding of attachment issues in order to best support the children and young people."
