Children and young people who are adopted from care, in care, or at risk of going into care are at higher risk of attachment difficulties and disorders. This may increase the likelihood of mental health conditions and poor emotional regulation. General Practitioners (GPs) play a role in managing this risk in the community alongside a multi-disciplinary team and supporting referrals to secondary care. However many GPs may be unfamiliar with the terminology of attachment difficulties, attachment disorders, secure attachment and insecure attachment. This article aims to explain these terms and update GPs regarding the implications of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) NG26 Guidelines on Child Attachment which focuses on looked after children.
