The National Institute for Clinical Excellence have just released a draft document for consolation on attachment difficulties.
This is a very welcome development!
The consultation page (http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/indevelopment/GID-CGWAVE0675/consultation) contains the documents, background documents and instructions on how to comment.
It is possible to register as a stakeholder but the consultation will close on the 13th July 2015.
So, what do I think is missing from the draft document? It is a great document, and a big step forward. However, I don't want to see attachment difficulties ring fenced to adopted children and children in the care system, and I think there is insufficient recognition of the way in which living or working with a child who has had disturbed attachments can actively impact on and destabilise the unsuspecting adult. This understanding is vitally important, as lack of professional understanding of the critical role of the adult and the adults' needs is at the heart of many placement breakdowns for children.
So I plan to share my views - what views have you got?
