Reassessing Attachment Theory in Child Welfare, Paperback / softback Book

Reassessing Attachment Theory in Child Welfare Paperback / softback


This book offers an analysis of the limitations of child attachment theory as the basis for decision-making in child welfare practice, examining controversies related to increasing diagnoses of `attachment disorder' and the use of attachment specific therapies for children in care.

The author calls for a new pedagogy of relational welfare that is more considerate of migrant families, refugees, adoptive and surrogate children and families in poverty.
