History of ATTACH

Created to help families and society deal with critical attachment and bonding issues.

The first conference convenes.

This groundbreaking organization and annual conference was created to help families and professional communities deal with critical attachment and bonding issues. Before March, 1989, there had never been a conference centered around the care of children and youths facing developmental trauma, bonding and attachment issues. Even though there was a great need for continued education and new resources and approaches, no such platform existed.
