Attachment Theory and Attachment-based Interventions
Dr David Howe, Emeritus Professor of Social Work
University of East Anglia
(Chair – Paul Dyson, Independent Social Worker)
Attachment theory focuses on the bond formed between a child and its primary caregiver, and on the
way in which this influences the emotional development of the child. Knowledge of attachment theories can help
social workers in their assessments, and determine pathways, and therefore can make a significant difference to
longer term outcomes. Two presentations will be given at this seminar.
In the first, there will be a brief outline of normal psychosocial development in the context of ‘good enough’
parent-child relationships, including mention of secure attachments, affect regulation, and Perry’s model of
neurosequential development. Having sketched the developmental picture under optimal conditions, the talk will
then consider the developmental consequences for children who suffer abuse, neglect and relational
trauma. Parents whose caregiving is described as hostile, helpless, neglectful and out-of-control tend to report
difficult and distressed relationship histories themselves. Some of the mechanisms that link the parents’ own
experiences of difficult childhoods and their current helpless, neglectful caregiving will be explored.
The second presentation builds on the principles outlined in the first. The principles of attachment-based
assessments and interventions will be briefly outlined as they relate to primary, secondary and
tertiary interventions. The concept of sensory, somatic and affect ‘regulation’ will be mentioned including a (very)
short note on Perry’s Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT).
Dr David Howe is Emeritus Professor at the University of East Anglia, Norwich. He has research interests in
emotional development, developmental attachment theory, and child abuse and neglect. His more recent
publications include Attachment Theory for Social Work Practice (1995), Attachment Theory, Child Maltreatment and Family
Support: a practice and assessment model (1999, with colleagues), Adoption, Search and Reunion: the long term experience
of adopted adults (with Julia Feast, The Children’s Society 2000 and BAAF 2004), Child Abuse and Neglect: attachment,
development and intervention (2005), The Emotionally Intelligent Social Worker (2008), and Attachment Across the
Lifecourse: A brief introduction (2011).
Paul Dyson is an Independent Social Worker and Researcher. He is the Independent Chairperson of the Hull
Safeguarding Children Board, and has conducted Serious Case Reviews in both Children and Adult Services. He
worked for Local Authority Social Care services for thirty years. Since leaving Local Authority work he has sought to
integrate his core interests of social work practice and management alongside research and teaching of social work.
He has had a long association with Making Research Count initially as a Local Authority contact, but also as an
interim Coordinator and contributor to local and national events.
