Survey about attachment – QToD participants needed

Posted in News

We have received this email request for QToD participants in a short survey about attachment 

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 circulate this email within your network and on the Teachers of the Deaf forum. The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and can be completed on desktop as well as mobile phone or tablet.

With thanks
