The Lilias Graham Trust is a charity which provides a unique Residential Support and Assessment Service for families with children. It helps parents understand their children's needs and enable them to meet those needs. Attachment-based play therapy is closely aligned with intensive support and experiential learning for parents in day-to-day parenting and nurturing tasks with their children. Parents’ own needs are acknowledged and supported in this process.
This publication is a companion volume to the Guidance on the Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families. It is a significant contribution to a major programme of work led by the Department of Health to provide guidance, practice materials and training resources on assessing children in need and their families.
