Our Knowledge Base
Our knowledge base on the making and breaking of attachments
We believe that the way in which children are currently moved from foster carer into adoptive families is out of step with our collective knowledge base on attachment and loss in childhood.
What follows is a summary of what we believe are some of the most crucial guiding principles about separation and loss in young children.
We believe that these principles should be informing all our policies in this area, whether it is from foster care into adoption, or indeed any situation where a child has to move from one attachment figure to another.
