Integrative team treatment for attachment trauma in children: Family therapy and EMDR

Description

Children traumatized in early attachment relationships by neglect, abuse, hospitalizations, surgeries, foster home placements, or orphanage care develop neurology designed by nature to keep them safe. When the trauma is over and the environment is changed, the children’s brains remain wired for survival, causing symptoms and behaviors that can be quite alarming.

This manual provides clinicians with a clear, practical protocol to heal trauma, change behaviors, and create healthy attachments. The protocol establishes a collaborative effort between the family and therapeutic team, utilizing EMDR and family strategies that afford the child a chance to heal and thrive.
