Attachment & Trauma
We understand that the causes of attachment and trauma-related problems – traumatic childhood neglect and abuse – have the power to inflict great developmental damage on children between birth and age three; developmental damage that, untreated, leads to a lifetime of extremely difficult relationships for the child or youth with nearly everyone with whom they have contact. These children often have a wide variety of extreme and exhausting symptoms.
At their worst, and at their core, children and youth with attachment-related problems do not know how to have relationships with other human beings. It is no wonder, then, that parents – biological, adoptive and foster – struggle greatly with them in the home.
We at House Calls Counseling, therefore, are engaged in the study and treatment of children and youth with Attachment and Trauma-related problems.
