This post is one of our Family Friday series when we give you a peek into our family treatment homes. Each Friday, we’ll show you a picture, along with a description from one of our treatment parents. Learn more about our unique treatment model for children with reactive attachment disorder and meet our treatment families.
“Joey* enjoys getting outside in our backyard and playing with our family dog. Fresh air and nature are good for everyone, whether they have reactive attachment disorder or not. For Joey, it’s especially liberating. He builds his self-esteem and confidence each time because he learns, despite his physical challenges and trauma background, he can still move forward and enjoy his life.”
-Jan Barber, Therapeutic treatment mom at the Institute for Attachment and Child Development
