A multi-disciplinary team evaluated a pilot service in the East of England offering a therapeutically led attachment-based intervention for families on the edge of care where there were significant safeguarding concerns alongside attachment problems in the parent/infant relationship and an identified parental mental health problem.
The evaluation examined psychological and safeguarding outcomes and explored practitioner perspectives.
