The secure base model

All children need to feel secure in their relationships with the adults who look after them. Where children have not experienced the kind of sensitive parenting that promotes security and resilience, they will find it difficult to trust and will struggle with managing their feelings and behaviour.

Secure Base is a model of caregiving in fostering and adoption that is based on theories of attachment and resilience while also drawing on child placement research. It provides a valuable framework and strengths-based approach for making sense of fostered and adopted children’s needs and behaviours and sets out the dimensions of caregiving that can support children to thrive and to fulfil their potential.

This practical guide to the Secure Base Model is designed to support social workers and other professionals involved in all aspects of fostering and adoption practice, from recruitment, assessment and preparation to matching and long-term support for placements through to adulthood.

Reviews

Although rooted in established theory, these are primarily workbooks rather than textbooks, with clear layouts and written in easily accessible language. The Secure Base Model’s place in the toolkit of the fostering social worker is already secured. However, anyone involved in children’s social work will find this a useful reference and tool.
