Abstract

Project outline: The aims of this research are to describe and evaluate experiences and perceptions of social and psychotherapeutic provision (including outcomes) offered by Keys Attachment Centre. This is intended to form the first phase of an evidence-based evaluation of the attachment therapy provided by Keys Attachment Centre. Components of the research: - baseline description of approach to treatment including articulation of theoretical base for practice; - stakeholder evaluation: young people (current and past), therapists, residential staff, health and social care purchasers, any significant attachment figures outside the project (e.g. previous foster carer); - exploration of efficacy of components of treatment approach; - ethical audit of intervention strategies will be integrated into the evaluation. Keys Attachment Centre provides therapy for people diagnosed as suffering from attachment disorder. Its aims are to provide "an inclusive therapeutic service within a safe secure residential living environment" for people whose early traumatic life experiences have impacted on their ability to form positive reciprocal relationships.
