The Association for the Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children has achieved a number of major accomplishments recently. In addition to preparing and publishing a Therapeutic Parenting Manual, A Clinical Practice Manual, and a wonderful DVD, it wrote an influential letter to the DSM V committee advocating for the inclusion of a diagnosis of Developmental Trauma Disorder. This is exciting work. This international association, with members from across the US, Canada, Europe and Asia is quite influential. Parents and professionals should visit the website of Association for the Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children.
The organization is now working on a number of projects that will benefit therapists and parents.
