Published by Beacon House.
'This article has been written for parents, carers, friends and family of children who have experiencedearly loss, trauma and attachment disruption. It has also been written for professionals who are working hard to support or teach vulnerable children, but who often feel disarmed and at a loss with how to effectively help the profound and complex difficulties they observe. Last but not least, this article is for adults who experienced loss or trauma during their own childhood, and who may find that the information here deeply resonates with their own life story. We will draw on current evidence andthinking to re-frame the ‘problems’ often seen in these children as ‘wise adaptations’ to the lessons thatlife has taught them. We will unpick and explain the spectrum of challengestraumatised children face, known as ‘Developmental Trauma’, andshare ideas for how to help the repair of early trauma.'.
