ATTACHMENT & TRAUMA NETWORK INC
June 6, 2012

When I found ATN more than a decade ago, they were a lifesaver! To meet and have support from other parents who were raising traumatized children was invaluable. They "got it" and helped me find resources and learn to be a better therapeutic parent. So I started volunteering. ATN has grown through the dedicated efforts of stressed out, overwhelmed parents who do not want other families to have to struggle as hard as they have struggled to find help and hope. There's still so much more to do. The medical community now recognizes early childhood trauma as a public health epidemic, something those of us who have been parenting abused and neglected children already know intimately. Keep up the good work ATN -- the world needs you!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

finding support, learning to therapeutically parent, making friends and finding a voice to advocate for my child and family.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase membership and the "voice" of advocating for traumatized children and families.
