CAN ATTACHMENT INFORM DECISION‐MAKING IN CHILD PROTECTION AND FORENSIC SETTINGS?

Work in attachment has reached an important crossroad. The “consensus statement” of Granqvist and his 41 coauthors (2017) states that the “D/disorganized” category in the Strange Situation (Ainsworth, Blehar, Waters, & Wall, 1978) should not be used for case‐specific child protection decision‐making. We agree with the consensus authors that the empirical evidence regarding the D/disorganized category indicates that it should not be used as the basis for child‐specific decision‐making nor are attachment classifications evidence of maltreatment. Moreover, as evidence regarding the parent‐child relationship, attachment classifications should not be used in isolation from other relevant information.

POINT 1: THERE IS MORE THAN ONE EXPANSION OF AINSWORTH ET Al.’S CLASSIFICATORY SYSTEM

POINT 2: THE ABC+DMM MAY BE BETTER ATTUNED TO THE ISSUES OF PARENTAL INADEQUACY AND CHILD PROTECTION THAN IS THE ABC+D MODEL
