Early attachment trauma and the impact on child’s development.

It is important to broaden our vision on attachment trauma, by pointing out the importance of the quality of parenting as an indicator to develop a secure attachment relationship.

This quality mainly depends on the caregivers’ ability to mentalize, regulate, contain, play, …

The absence of these features causes traumatic stress in the child and impacts his psychological and neurological development and the possibility to attach. Thus, it is important that we are aware of the relationship between early attachment trauma (EAT) and affect dysregulation and dissociation.

The seriousness depends on the early age of the child, an immature coping mechanism, the child’s different experience of danger, the stress level of adverse experiences and the caregiver as the source of trauma.

We can consider dissociation and affect dysregulation as complex adaptation to trauma.

In addition, when the child is not able to manage distress, it lacks the capability to integrate the experiences.

Dissociation and inadequate self regulation interfere with one another and impact the development of the sense of self.

By raising awareness amongst caregivers and clinicians about EAT and the severe consequences, new therapeutic opportunities could be developed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to recognize, identify and categorize early attachment trauma and be able to formulate and adapt attachment features in the therapeutic relationship
  • Participants will be able to look from a broader perspective on early attachment trauma (EAT) and collect, classify and interpret data about EAT which serves as basis for AIP informed therapy. Based on this classification the participant will be able to design a casus conceptualization and treatment plan
  • Participants will be able to understand that dissociation and inadequate self regulation interfere with one another and impact the development of the sense of self.
  • Participants will be able to recognize the importance of the quality of parenting in the formation of a secure attachment relationship
  • Participants will be able to identify the important features that underlie the formation of a secure attachment relationship

Paper Session 2 - The Mosaic of Life: Integrating Attachment and Trauma Theory in the Treatment of Challenging Behavior in Elderly with Dementia

Saturday, April 02 1:30 PM - 1:50 PM Room: Hearst

Elderly individuals with dementia are aware people who think and feel. Suffering from dementia makes them feel unsafe. This lack of safety can result in attachment behavior (e.g. proximity seeking) or challenging behavior resulting from posttraumatic symptoms, triggered by the experience of insecurity. We can use the symbol of a mosaic to illustrate that the elderly person is the sum of all his or her different life experiences which make a unique person. The importance of a holistic assessment will be emphasized, in which the attachment history and traumatic experiences of the person are integrated. In this workshop, a treatment model will be presented, wherein different important features such as mentalization, self regulation, and internal working models are highlighted. The model integrates neuroscience to facilitate growth and change. By bringing together the environmental aspects with the interpersonal aspects, a safe haven is created in which person-centered care, attachment and trauma theory are used to tailor treatment to the individual.The blend of attachment and trauma theory with neuroscience brings us new therapeutic possibilities in working with this specific population.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the foundations of trauma and attachment.
  • Assess ways in which trauma and attachment intersect with the symptoms of dementia.
  • Apply treatment approaches to challenging behavior in patients with dementia.
  • Define the therapeutic relationship and the importance of the figure of the therapist and apply it in the work with elderly.
