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.
“Trauma from early childhood deregulates the brain. For a child with reactive attachment disorder, this quiet time to read in our home gives him a safe spot to calm his brain. At the same time, he’s learning how to live with a family. He’s learning how to respect the quiet of our home when we request it, to let go of control, and to embrace the ability to simply relax and trust us to take care of him.”
-Jan Barber, Therapeutic treatment mom at the Institute for Attachment and Child Development
