ATTACh has been a non-profit working on the vital issues of attachment, trauma and bonding since 1989. In these past almost three decades, so much in our field has changed, evolved and grown. From best practices, new definitions, and the huge advancements in neurobiology, ATTACh has been growing with each development as well. As we move closer to our thirtieth conference next year, we are reflecting more and more on our beginnings and our path to today. ATTACh was founded in Colorado, and it seems very appropriate to be “bringing it home” this year. Bringing it home is a perfect tagline for ATTACh and the attachment and trauma field. If you are currently parenting a child with attachment difficulties or you are a professional working with our families, you know how needed this work is. The children that we serve need us to continue to not only advocate for them in schools and other systems, but also to bring this knowledge home. They need us to know what their brains look like, and the best methods for treating them, talking with them, and caring for them.
