Attachment and Trauma Training Program

When children and adults have been repeatedly exposed to multiple, often life threatening stressors, their capacity to connect is compromised. In today's results oriented environment, it is difficult for those delivering services and treatment at the community level to know how to offer healing in ways that count. The Attachment and Trauma Training Program seeks to bridge this gap by providing attachment and trauma informed consultation and training to child welfare agencies, mental health professionals and parents/caregivers of children with complex trauma histories.
The Attachment and Trauma Training Program provides training and consultation services to parents, caregivers, professionals and paraprofessionals caring for children and families experiencing attachment and trauma issues.


  • Training, consultation and support groups for parents and caregivers caring for children and youth experiencing attachment and trauma issues.
  • Training and consultation for professionals and paraprofessionals working with children and youth experiencing attachment and trauma issues.
  • Information and referral service to parents and professionals regarding attachment and trauma focused services for children, youth and caregivers available in the community.

How to Access

Training and consultation is provided primarily in the St. Paul/Minneapolis metropolitan area and periodically statewide in Minnesota. Professionals as well as parents and caregivers can benefit from these services.
