The Centre for Attachment (CFA) is a New Zealand-based agency dedicated to providing support, education and training for families, organisations and communities on optimal child development and attachment.

We focus on the practical application of the latest scientific discoveries, offering a ‘why to’ approach as we assist parents and professionals alike in navigating the important questions of raising children.

The old nature-nurture debate is outdated. We now know that our experiences govern the expression of our genetic potential. Grounded in the research data, CFA translates the findings from neuroscience, medical health and psychology into a practical framework for understanding the needs of children and promoting emotional, physiological and relational health.

We assist people in making good choices for each unique situation, working toward the dream that every baby will have the experience of a warm, loving, and attuned parental relationship - the best possible start in life.
