My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Attach, Minneapolis, MN, USA
This is to Peggy Thatcher...
I was extremely heartbroken to read your post and I pray that you will go back on and post another review after reading the (Attach.org) position paper under the About ATTach tab. I found this organization June of 2010 and it saved me as a Mom. I was just hanging on by a thread because I thought that I was the only one that had a child that was out of control because he was too afraid to attach to me. He has almost killed me twice now and also injured me hundreds of times. He has even cracked 5 of my ribs and stabbed me with pens.
This group has not only given me the support I need (talking to people that really "get it"), but it has trained me in all of the crucial areas of raising a severely traumatized child. I would encourage you to look at the speakers that were at this last conference a couple of weeks ago, along with following next years conference and the speakers that will be their. They do NOT even allow speakers at the conference that believe in any of the "holding therapies". There are always several speakers that talk about how the brain is affected by trauma and the fear that our kids carry every day. Their fear comes out as anger. They act the only way they know how to in order to survive.
This group has been a lifesaver for me and hundreds of other parents just like me. Thank you for taking the time to read my email and hopefully look at the attach.org website to see what they truly believe in. I would love to hear what you think of Attach after reading their mission statement.
Thanks again...Faye..... I am one extremely grateful parent to Attach and all of its members. I couldn't get up each day and start NEW, (being the best Mom I can be) without the knowledge and support I get from Attach. I am thankful to all of those board member and volunteers that work countless hours each year to make that years conference even better than the one the year before. My hugs to all of you:~}
