Evaluating Trauma and Attachment Disruptions in Early Childhood
 

What assessment tools are best and how do we administer them for maximum information?

During this workshop, a family engages in a thorough evaluation which is observed by the participating group (with permission of the family). After administration of the assessment, the participating professional group is led through the process of scoring and interpreting assessment tools and completing a report.

 

This training is particularly helpful for clinicians wanting to expand their understanding of how to identify trauma and attachment issues and determine what therapies are best to match with specific trauma and attachment difficulties.

Traumatized Children: Building Trust. An innovative program for health professionals. 

Developed for and field tested in 1997-2000 with children who lived through the war in Croatia (the former Yugoslavia), we worked with the orphans called “unadaptable” because of extreme behaviors. The program has since been translated and used in Russia, Kosovo, and other countries, and has been adapted and successfully used with children in foster care and adoptive families in the US.
