Implications for Practise

Formal assessment: assessment of attachment should be carried out with formal assessment tools that have validating publications.
Formal authorisation of experts: the professionals carrying out the assessments should be formally trained, tested, and authorised such that the court can know how much to rely upon their findings.
Structured and transparent reports: Reports written to describe the outcome of the assessments should be “transparent” in the sense that all readers of the reports should be able to differentiate what the assessed person(s) did or said from what attributions were made about their behaviour by the expert. Further, the published basis for the attributions should be made clear.
Availability of evidence: the actual video or audio recording and transcriptions should be available to court authorities such that expert “opinion” is not needed.
Good assessments of attachment should also be useful for intervention planning.
