Attachment in children and young people who are adopted from care, in care or at high risk of going into care

Attachment-6

NICE have produced helpful guidelines covering the identification, assessment and treatment of attachment difficulties in children and young people up to age 18 who are adopted from care, in special guardianship, looked after by local authorities in foster homes (including kinship foster care), residential units and other accommodation, or on the edge of care. The guidelines aim to address the many emotional and psychological needs of children and young people in these situations, including the impact of trauma.

The guidelines can also be found in our library.
