The Attachment Matters Study is closing on Friday 12 June, 2020.

This is first national UK online survey looking into attachment interventions, and is being conducted by Pasco Fearon, Peter Fonagy, and colleagues from UCL and the University of York.

They are specifically interested in hearing from practitioners working therapeutically with children with attachment difficulties and/or their caregivers.

We urge you to support the DDP community and fill in the secure online survey, which along with the information sheet can be found at:

This is your chance to help build a picture of attachment intervention provision in the UK.

You can also follow the study and share content from their social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at @Attachment2020.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the team on

Attachment Matters: UK Survey of Routinely Used Interventions for Improving Attachment in Infants and Children

“We are conducting the first UK national survey of current interventions used by services that work with children aged 0-13 years 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 names will be used. Please spare some time to take our survey which should take no more than 20 minutes and can be completed on desktop as well as mobile phone or tablet.

Help us build a picture of attachment intervention provision in the UK.”
