Social Work Assessment of Attachment Relationships

Assessment of attachment within families is particularly helpful in providing powerful clues about the links between parents’ relationship histories, the quality of their parenting and their children’s behaviour and functioning. It also leads to greater understanding of the impact of individual family members’ experience of relationships upon their self confidence, self esteem and self efficacy and their future relationships.

IFS has particular experience and expertise in the use of Developmental Attachment Theory as an analytical tool to inform assessments of children and their families.
