We will soon publish the brand new, second edition of our Attachment Guide! It is due for release in April 2020! The first edition was published in 2013, and we decided it was time for an update.
This Guide introduces readers to attachment – the need that all babies have to know that someone will share their fears and joys. It uses the analogy of ‘Sabre Tooth Tigers & Teddy Bears’ to make the ideas that lie at the core of the attachment theory understandable for everyone.
The public often find insights into attachment to be compelling and sobering. They gain unexpected glimpses into their earlier lives, and the relevance for policy decisions quickly becomes obvious. People frequently ask, “How come no one tells us this stuff?” This guide is an attempt to tell more people about this stuff.
The guide is written in a style suited to both personal and professional interests. Parents will find the information in it as relevant to their lives as do nursery staff, childminders, health visitors, midwives, family support workers, teachers who work in professionals roles with children.
Written by developmental psychologist Dr Suzanne Zeedyk
