Prof Sue White,
University of Sheffield, and James Blewett,
King’s College London
In this webinar, Prof Sue White will talk about her work on attachment theory in conversation with James Blewett.
Participants will be invited to join in the discussion.
Sue will draw on her (2019) book on the topic to offer an analysis and summary of the uses, abuses and
limitations of attachment theory in contemporary child welfare practice.
Analysing the primary science and drawing on original empirical work, she will show how attachment theory can distort and influence decision-making. She will demonstrate that the dominant view of attachment theory may promote a problematic diagnostic mindset, whilst
undervaluing the enduring relationships between children and adults.
Sue will argue that attachment theory can still play an important role in child welfare practice, but that we need a radical shift toward a sophisticated understanding of the realities of human experience to inform ethical practice.

There is already emerging evidence, internationally and domestically, that the Coronavirus crisis is leading to an increase in domestic abuse. In this webinar we will cover:
• The implications for supporting women and other vic- tims of domestic abuse;
• Recognising and addressing concerns about the welfare of children in such a context;
• Engaging and working with perpetrators in the current context;
• The importance and reality of multi-agency work in such circumstances;
• Messages from research and practiceinformed knowledge about domestic abuse, and how these can be applied to current practice.
During the Covid 19 crisis, local authorities need ensure that they are able to fulfil their role and responsibilities toward young people in the care system. In a period when face to face contact with children and young people is more limited, ensuring the welfare of those children and supporting their placements creates a particularly potentially complex set of challenges. This webinar explores the ramifications for relationship building, supporting parents, contact and care planning.
In particular we will:
• Consider the impact of the crisis on practice with children in the care system;
• Reflect on the particular responsibilities toward working with young people who are in, or who left, the care system;
• Discuss the particular challenges facing practitioners, managers and independent reviewing officers;
• Think about the implications of current Government guidance regarding statutory duties toward children in care;
• Identify the messages from research in relation to care planning, and consider how these can be applied to the current context;
• Explore ways of supporting foster carers, kinship carers and birth families;
• Devise strategies that can address these challenges to placement stability in the current context;
• Apply a rights-based approach to permanency planning in a period of crisis.
