Nice | Attachment in children in care or at risk of going into care

This is a new guideline from NICE on trying to avoid and manage attachment problems in children in all sorts of care scenarios.

Most of this will hopefully be implemented by social workers, but we may need to refer patients on. I have also seen several patients who have been in the care system and I think that it is useful to know what is being advised, so that we can check that they have accessed what they are entitled to. Skip the assessment section for a quicker read.

Help should be offered at the first signs of ‘serious difficulties’, or if there is more than one child with attachment difficulties in the placement.
