At the Attachment & Trauma Network, it is our mission to promote healing of children impacted by trauma through supporting their families, schools, and communities.
We believe that children impacted by trauma and those with attachment disorders can heal.
We believe that parents, who are supported and taught therapeutic parenting, are the best healing agents of their traumatized child.
We believe that children impacted by trauma need trauma-informed, attachment-focused therapies.
We believe that all children learn best in trauma-sensitive schools where strategies are in place to help the children and adults feel safe, stay regulated, get connected, and not be re-traumatized or triggered. We believe trauma-informing schools empower trauma-responsive educators.
We believe that providing resources to the families from the start (once a traumatized child has been identified) is the best way to minimize crises, reduce disruptions and promote healing.
We believe that ongoing parent-to-parent support is critical in arming the families with strategies, tools, and strength to persevere daily.
We believe that "touching trauma at its heart" is more than a tagline, it’s a healing mission.
