Attachment therapy

A big new addition!

The trauma centre site has always offered attachment therapy, working with children or adults who are suffering with the fallout of early emotional or physical neglect.

When I initially started to look into the possibility of the great transition to Social Enterprise, I was unsure about whether to continue with this.  However, I've just spent the afternoon with a family therapist who offers attachment therapy with children and adoptive families.

As with all independent therapists, she can feel isolated and cut off when working alone, and work like that needs support.  Also, there is very little work like this offered by the trust or CAMHS.

She was already interested in getting involved in the centre as we transit to social enterprise, and assuming the management committee agree, then offering attachment therapies would be a really important add-on to the work of the organisation.
