ATFT for Mental Health Professionals

80-hour, Online Certification Post-Graduate Training Course for Mental Health Professionals

Learn to heal attachment wounds & trauma in children.

Early experiences within attachment systems form the threads that weave the fabric of every human being.  A safe and secure attachment system builds resilience for a lifetime while attachment traumas and toxic stress can erode mental and physical health and well-being.

The Attachment and Trauma-Focused Training (ATFT-MH) is an online, 80-hour, post-graduate Certification Course designed to build the capacity of mental health practitioners to repair childhood attachment wounds and trauma.

Deborah Gray, MPA, LICSW, an expert in attachment, grief, and trauma issues in children and author of Promoting Healthy Attachments: Hands-on Techniques to Use with Your Clients; Attaching Through Love, Hugs, and Play; Games and Activities for Attaching with Your Child; Attaching in Adoption; and Nurturing Adoptions: Creating Resilience After Trauma and Neglect, developed the course for ATTACh.
