This chapter is not intended to be an exhaustive overview of attachment research (for a detailed review see, Bretherton and Waters, 1985; Parkes and Stevenson-Hinde, 1982). Instead, the aim of this chapter is to focus on one aspect of attachment that has sparked considerable research and debate in the past few years, the role of culture. More specifically, this chapter will examine the concept of attachment and its relevance in cross-cultural settings. It will also explore the implications for social work practice in multicultural Britain.
