So many children and youth are innocent victims. Some are born with severe or debilitating health and intellectual disabilities, while others may live in environments where they have witnessed or experienced sexual assault, child maltreatment, neglect, family violence, community violence, illness or death in the family, school violence, or natural disasters.
Trauma impacts these children both physically and psychologically. If untreated, it increases their risks for physical and mental health issues, impacts their social and emotional development, decreases their academic success, lessens their ability to form healthy relationships which includes bonding with parents.
The Association for Training on Trauma and Attachment in Children (ATTACh) educates and trains parents, occupational therapists, mental health, and other professionals who to help children cope and manage the effects of trauma and most of all, help them heal.

Currently, ATTACh is only able to refer ONE out of every FIVE requests from families in need to trauma and attachment-trained professionals.
We aim to increase our capacity to inform, educate and train these highly requested professionals whose expertise is vital to the care and treatment of some of our most ill and vulnerable children. When professionals are trained by ATTACh and leading industry experts, we help to connect and refer them to children and families who need their help.
