ATTACh is an international coalition of professionals and
families dedicated to helping those with attachment difficulties by
sharing our knowledge, talents and resources.
Our vision is to be an international leader in creating
public awareness and education regarding attachment and the critical
role it plays in human development. We provide an annual conference,
membership directory, and other benefits to our members and the public.
We invite you to join us as we continue our mission to promote healthy
attachment and its critical importance to human development.
Many children throughout the world do not benefit
from adequate parenting during their early years. Their foundation for
healthy development is damaged so they have difficulty in forming
loving, lasting, intimate relationships.
This condition, known as attachment disorder,
can be triggered by abuse, neglect, abandonment, separation from birth
parents, birth trauma, maternal depression, chronic illness, frequent
moves and placements, and even divorce.
