Attachment Matters survey – request for participants

Posted in News

Please note this request for participants:

Dear colleague

We are a team of researchers at UCL and the University of York and are conducting an important survey of  current practice in the UK for 0-13 year old children with or at risk of attachment problems and/or their caregivers. We are contacting as many teams and individual practitioners as possible across the UK.

Our aim is to build a picture of the availability of different kinds of support for those children and families as this information is currently not known. 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. We hope to find out about face-to-face working, and not online provision. This work will also play an important role in strengthening the evidence base underpinning those interventions. Survey responses will be anonymous, no individuals will be identified in any published materials arising from this  project.

We would be extremely grateful if you could pass this email on to all your team members and colleagues who work with children and/or their caregivers therapeutically. The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and can be completed on desktop as well as mobile phone or tablet. To read the information sheet and to take part, all you have to do is click the link below, which will take you to a secure online survey:
