A team of researchers at UCL and the University of York and are conducting a survey of current practice in the UK for 0 to 13-year-old children with or at risk of attachment problems.

The aim is to build a picture of the availability of different kinds of support for those children and families as this information is currently unknown.

The results will be essential for setting priorities for clinical practice and establishing the availability of attachment interventions in different areas for this group of children. This work will also play an important role in strengthening the evidence base underpinning those interventions.

This research is being funded by the National Institute of Health Research. The survey will take 20 minutes and responses will be anonymous.
