Dana Wyss – Rebuilding Trust After Attachment Ruptures in Children & Adolescents
Family loss, abuse, neglect, and complex developmental trauma erode trust in self and others causing attachment ruptures. Children and adolescents are at higher risk of impact due to their dependence on others to meet their needs, making them even more vulnerable!
Without proper intervention, these ruptures will greatly impact a child’s overall safety, and their ability to connect with others is jeopardized.
Watch Dana Wyss, PhD, author and expert in complex trauma, to delve deeper into the impact of these attachment ruptures that lead to lack of trust, anger/rage, anxiety, self-injury, aggression toward others, and suicidal ideation. You’ll learn how to:
- Support increased sense of safety and attachment, regardless of the child’s level of involvement in treatment
- Build connections in groups, individual and family therapy
- Implement modifications to address various developmental and functioning levels
Through experiential practice that supports resiliency, imagination, and identity, you’ll master activities to build critical thinking, nonverbal and verbal expression to immediately support attachment repair!
