Trauma and disorganized attachment in refugee children : integrating theories and exploring treatment options
Refugee Survey Quarterly
Refugee families incur many different types of stressors in the course of the phases prior to flight, those of flight, and resettlement. Multiple and varied negative life events and traumas, such as those experienced by refugee families, may give rise to negative changes in attachment between children and their parents. However, such negative changes in attachment may be countered through the use of culturally appropriate counselling theories and their respective interventions. The integration of attachment theory with family systems, trauma systems, and cognitive behavioural theories and the use of cognitive behavioural caregiver support, filial therapy training, and play therapy interventions are discussed as a treamtent framework for promoting more positive and secure attachments between refugee children and their caregivers.
