Use this guideline in conjunction with the NICE public health guideline on looked-after children and young people and the NICE clinical guideline on when to suspect child maltreatment. Ensure that the health, education and social care processes and structures surrounding children and young people with attachment difficulties are stable and consistent. Ensure that the stability or instability of the child or young person’s placement does not determine whether psychological interventions or other services are offered. Ensure that, whenever possible, children and young people enter the care system in a planned manner rather than in response to a crisis.

Help arrange kinship placements, if safe and in the best interest of the child or young person. Consider comprehensive education and training for potential carers to prepare them for the challenges involved in looking after children and young people with attachment difficulties and the likely impact on them and their families. Provide ongoing support and advice, either by telephone or in person, and proactively monitor difficulties in placements to identify opportunities to provide additional support, if there are significant attachment difficulties or if disruption to the placement is likely. Actively involve children and young people, and their parents or current carers, in the process of entering the care system or changing placement.

If a return to the birth parents or original family is not an option, keep siblings together if it is possible and in the best interests of all the children or young people. Social care workers should keep a record of the significant people and places in the child or young person’s life while they are in the care system. Ensure safeguarding is maintained during any intervention for a child or young person with attachment difficulties. Do not treat attachment difficulties with pharmacological interventions.

Schools and other education providers should ensure that all staff who may come into contact with children and young people with attachment difficulties receive appropriate training on attachment difficulties, as set out in recommendation 1. Children and young people with attachment difficulties, and their parents or carers, should be involved in the design of the training courses, wherever possible. If a change is unavoidable, it should be planned in advance so that disruption is minimal. See the table in appendix 1 for further information about these tools.
