Review for Attach, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a psychologist with 15 years experience working with high needs children involved with child welfare and adoption. ATTACh is a highly professional organization that has evolved greatly over the last 10 years to become a key resource for professionals and families from all around the world. I recommend their Parent Manual to all my clients. The one conference I attended was a tremendous learning opportunity for me as a professional and involved internationally recognized and highly respected experts in a variety of fields. The organization is a tremendous support to people (especially families) facing hugely challengins situations.

The comments made in the initial review are both dated and inaccurate. ATTACh has explicit policies denouncing Holding Therapy. The policies and initiatives of ATTACh are carefully based in science and the professional literature. It has helped raise issues for helping children and families around the world.

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

Receiving training, accessing resources, networking to coordinate services for families in need, advocating for high-needs kids and their families, acting to set standards for effective and ethical treatment.

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

Help it become more integrated with large research programs based in universities and key mental health organizations.

What is unique about this organization?

ATTACh excells at combining the parent (consumer) and professional perspective
