Child Attachment and Psychological Therapies Research (ChAPTRe)

ChAPTRe is co-directed by Dr Nick Midgley and Prof Pasco Fearon. It has been developed as a partnership between the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and University College London (UCL).

The mission of the research unit is to be a space for developing and promoting research related to children and young people's mental health and emotional well-being. Our particular focus is on understanding children's development (especially in relation to attachment and mentalization) and both evaluating and reaching a better understanding of psychological therapies for children and young people. 

ChAPTRe is involved in a number of on-going research studies, and also offers trainings and consultations to those working in this field. We also have limited opportunities to offer academic supervision to high-quality PhD students who wish to study at UCL.
