Attach-- Association for Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children

 
Share

Many children throughout the world do not benefit from adequate parenting during their early years. Their foundation for healthy development is damaged so they have difficulty in forming loving, lasting, intimate relationships. This condition, known as attachment disorder, can be triggered by abuse, neglect, abandonment, separation from birth parents, birth trauma, maternal depression, chronic illness, frequent moves and placements, and even divorce.

Parents find that children with this condition are less responsive to direction, less eager to please and more aggressive. These children are at increased risk for serious psychological problems in adolescence and adulthood. Proper diagnosis and treatment will help change the future for these children - and for our society.

ATTACH’s Unified Approach

ATTACH, the Association for Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children, is an international coalition of professionals and families dedicated to helping those with attachment difficulties by sharing our knowledge, talents and resources.

Our vision is to be an international leader in creating public awareness and education regarding attachment and the critical role it plays in human development. We provide a quarterly newsletter, an annual conference, membership directory, and other benefits to our members and the public. We invite you to join us as we continue our mission to promote healthy attachment and its critical importance to human development.
