Adoption Support

Attachment Works is not a registered Adoption Support Agency. However, via commissioning by Local Authorities, we have extensive experience of and a particular interest in providing adoption support. 

The support provided ranges from short interventions to assist adopters to have a better understanding of their child, so as to inform appropriate parenting approaches, to complex packages of support, which may include psychotherapy for the adopter; Sensory Attachment Intervention for the child; dyadic attachment based play therapy for both and work/training with the team around the child [for example, education staff]

In all cases support plans are informed by assessment and mutually agreed with family members and relevant professionals.
